This time of year, the meadows around my home are full of feathery goldenrod and deep purple asters in bloom.
Purple and yellow are direct complements of each other on the color wheel, making them fun to work with in design exploration. Last winter, I had the goldenrod and aster in mind when I made these three crazy patch square boxes:
The flowers really are not referenced in the embellishing, I simply wanted to capture the colors. Even without recognizable images of the flowers that inspired me, I am still reminded of my lovely autumn meadow each time I see the boxes.
