Side one of my Day and Night Dreams Quilt is finished. I tried to use darker colors like blue black, navy and deep violet in this quilt top but my brain just couldn't work those colors in. I love bright, clear colors and gave in to a selection of my favorite color pallets. My idea for this quilt came from my passion for color. I love to dye fabrics and find it very hard to sleep on nights when my dye lots are batching. I just can't wait to see the results. I often use more dye solution than is needed so I can get faster results.
This pattern was inspired by the Bricks in Bars quilt made by Ada Gingerich of Arthur, Illinois. The inspiration quilt is featured on page 114, Plate 62 in the Amish Abstractions book published by Pomegranate for the Fine Arts Museums of San Francisco.
Wishing you sweet dreams from Wisconsin! Chris
