Color Play by Lisa Ellis

This month’s puzzle spotlights a quilt titled Color Play made by Lisa Ellis of Fairfax, Virginia for the 2016 Quilt Alliance contest and auction, Playing Favorites. Lisa serves as treasurer of the Quilt Alliance board and is director of Sacred Threads, a nonprofit organization that presents a biennial quilt exhibition held in Herndon, Virginia.

Artist’s Statement

My obsession with the cathedral window block started with a quilt my grandmother made in the 1970’s using a variety of bright, cheerful, and colorful fabrics. She made the block the traditional way by folding squares of muslin, adding the colorful windows, and hand stitching back the flaps. I developed a new method to make a mock cathedral window entirely by machine and to incorporate more fabrics into the block. Color Play honors the tradition of my grandmother with an exploration of color.
