In the 1920′s a new style of art emerged from a group of Parisian artists who were part of a “society of decorator artists”. Their influence created what we have come to know as “Art Deco”. Although Art Deco is not necessarily symmetrical its designs are based on geometric and mathematical shapes. As all good art styles do, Art Deco has enjoyed it ebbs and flows of popularity over the past century. Jason Yenter’s newest collection is giving the quilting community the opportunity to have some fun with it on fabric. So here is a sneak peek at some of his wonderful new designs and colorations for anyone’s palette.
This is the main print in this collection. These flowers get their design elements from combinations of many simple shapes. Doesn’t this coloration just glow on the black background? It comes in 3 others as well.
This print reminds me of the Chrysler Building in New York City…but smaller, of course.
Even though this collection won’t be showing up in quilt shops until later this year, the purple tulips are ready to make this print shine NOW!
Take a look at our Deco collection on our web site. We would love to hear which print or color is your favorite and what you would make with it.
