Foursquare by Amy Munson

This month’s puzzle spotlights a quilt titled Foursquare made by Amy Munson of Bismarck, North Dakota for the 2016 Quilt Alliance contest and auction, Playing Favorites. It was chosen for a Judge’s Choice Award by Marianne Fons.

Artist’s Statement

What do I love most about quilting? I love creating my own patterns and unique designs that mix traditional and contemporary techniques. I love raw edges and ripped fabric, embellished with embroidery and beads. I love playing with color and texture.

Judge Marianne Fons’ comments: What impressed me most about this entry—and the reason I chose it as my personal favorite—is how well it reads graphically. The work’s solidity of design comes through clearly, even when viewed as a tiny thumbnail photo on my computer screen. I love how the house is “boxed” with lighter and then darker blue. I love how the artist “built” the house using non-architectural print fabrics. The colors used for the house make it appear cozy and inviting, a place anyone would love to live. Raw edges, ripped fabric, and bead embellishment are not techniques I use in my own work, but my hat is off to the maker of this clever piece, who beautifully and skillfully captured an iconic American architectural style.
