I was surprised to discover how the color and hue of the border fabric that was auditioned on this art quilt really brought out different hues in the quilt!
If you take a look above, the photo to the left is the total painted quilt without no border. Under the same light and same position, to the right, I placed a muddled dark purple fabric next to the piece. The photo under that one, I placed a batik fabric that had green, teal colors through it.
I was quite convinced that the batik was too bright and the art was calling for a quieter fabric. That’s why I chose the darker purple.
Wow, when looking at both photos next to each other, the piece looks totally different!! One pulls out the darker hues and the art does not look happy and bright. When the batik was placed next to the piece, the art piece came to life and it was bright and cheery!!
This totally amazed me. I hope you found it interesting as well!!
