black coconuts

For my OCA course I had to make a design based on a sketch. This is not my usual way of designing, but the one I did for this course was one which I really liked. Enough to make a quilt out of it :-). I like black and white fabric so I went for these. The background is a rough white linen while the black shapes are made from smooth Kona fabric. You see, not only a contrast in color, but also in texture and in shapes.
The original title was supposed to be 'Opposites', but when my friend's granddaughter walked into the studio and saw this quilt she called it 'Black coconuts'. To be honest I liked this title much more than the original, so that is what it is called now :-).
