Lately, I have been really interested in monochromatic design–or maybe duochromatic (not a word apparently). I love this painting by Jasper Johns (photo courtesy of the MOMA website).
I also love these two painting by Marc Rothko (photos courtesy of the National Gallery of Art).
There is something serene about these paintings that really appeals to me. I am very tempted to make a Double Wedding Ring quilt in all green, but I wonder if it defeats the purpose of piecing fabric to make a quilt in similar values of the same color? I like the idea of simplifying a quilt as much as possible without losing the quilti-ness. What do you think?
