International Orange

This small quilt pays homage to the bold geometric style of Czech artist František Kupka (1871–1957). I have reinterpreted his black-and-white painting, Abstraction, in a wholecloth ombré blue fabric with inset strips the iconic color of the Golden Gate Bridge, which is known as International Orange.

The quilt has been juried into QuiltCon 2019, an international modern quilt exhibition taking place February 21–24, 2019, in Nashville, Tennessee. It was one of 400 quilts selected from a pool of more than 1,700 entries.

QuiltCon is held annually by the Modern Quilt Guild (MQG), a nonprofit that supports and encourages the growth and development of modern quilting.

“The QuiltCon juried quilts really demonstrate how innovative and design-focused modern quilting has become,” said MQG executive director Alissa Haight Carlton, ”and it’s thrilling be able to feature the best in modern quilting on this international stage.”
