Solid colors create a “WOW” factor and strong graphics to inspire artists and quilters. Solid colors simplify design and clarify pattern and needlework. They draw attention to regional and international styles and to changing tastes. In 200 years colors have changed, but solid color quilts have always been with us. They define the earliest whole-cloth quilts, classic 19th century appliqué quilts, work by 20th century quilt designers, political quilts, and today’s Modern Quilt movement. Please come and be inspired by solid colors at The Quilters Hall of Fame, Tuesday through Saturday, 10 AM – 4 PM.
