Krista Withers, it just seems to glow.
So when I received a request from Adrianne to use Marcelle's picture in her post about medallion quilts in the weekly column she writes for the My Stars blog, I was thrilled.
Here is what Adrianne had to say:
Marcelle Goes to the Circus by Cindy Wiens radiates life. Notice Cindy’s
use of bold saturated colors mixed with neutral grays and creams. The
red pulls your eye right to the center. The scrappy confetti of color in
the middle area dances all around. The dark, muted tones along the
outside ring is a brilliant way to contain the composition. It visually
stops at the edge and then leads you right back to the center again.
There is so much wonderful movement in this quilt.
Such nice words. Marcelle and I may both be blushing just a little bit.
You can read the rest of her post here, along with some great hints for designing your own medallion quilt. Thanks so much , Adrianne!
