Quilt Quark Gallery from Dana

The attached quilt is the one I made for the Repurpose Challenge.

The aqua-blue linen was from a suit skirt I stopped wearing years ago, but hung on to to use in a quilt someday (finally!), the red-orange silk was from a pant suit, and the plaid silk is from a shirt.  This would serve as a good exercise in color theory since the blue fabric makes the red-orange fabric look very red.

The design is based on an element from a piece of mid-century kimono fabric my dad brought back from Japan after WWII in 1946.  It reminded me of a broken satellite with far away planets in the background, and then the amazing amount of "space junk" floating around our planet, which led me to name it "Time Templar."
