Abstract with circles

This is another quilt I made for Katie PM's class. For the background I used a red gradation and added an orange and purple fabric to it. This way I had an analogous color scheme. With a complimentary color - green - I added shapes in different sizes to it. These appliques are completely surrounded by the color of the background and this way they change the value of the compliment. I used only one color green but - depending on the background - it sometimes looks darker and sometimes it look lighter. As usual the size of this quilt is 12"x12". The working title is green circles, but I am not completely happy with that title. Any suggestions are welcome.
I am linking this post to Nina-Marie's Off the Wall Friday.

Lovely piece! I love the colors and the graphics. And the quilting!

I love bold colors, so this piece fits the bill for me. I, too, find it hard to name my pieces. I read somewhere that you should name your pieces with descriptive names. That way people can find it easier if they are looking it up on the Internet.

This is a good color relations study. I would name it "Resonance In Green."

I love studies like this, am fascinated with color and value interactions. Am a bit stumped for a name though. The non-circle motifs remind me of fences.

I agree, this is a good study in color relationships. And, circles are one of my favorite motifs!
