Modern Values: Fields of Gold

Carole Tullis, Scarborough, ON

Dimensions: 66.75" x 65.25"

Materials: Cotton and two layers of cotton batt.

Techniques: Machine piecing and domestic-machine quilting.

Credits: Inspired by a competition to create a new quilt using the traditional flying geese unit. Photography by John C. Rylaarsdam.

Artist’s Statement:
Modern work with simple structure, design and large visual impact is achieved using traditional techniques. Gradation of the ochres in the geese units results in a value change in the gold fields, which evokes the traditional pineapple quilt. Modern quilting is used to enhance the simplicity of the design.
