To Focus Attention
However, I think it could be a lot better. It lacks interest. it needs something that says 'look at me'.
What if I play with value contrast, what if I make some parts lighter and some parts darker, will that make it more interesting?
Dark contrasted with light focuses attention
The dark blue contrast with the medium blues and draw my attention. My eye travels from one to the other and back again.
At the same time the two medium blues are fighting among themselves for my attention.
The result is the my eye also goes back and forth from the medium blues in the background to the dark blue in the foreground.
Add some interesting quilting and there will be lots to hold my attention.
How this quilt is pieced will surprise you . Check out my 6 March 2011 post.
