What Ulla says about her design:

About 30 years ago I bought a fabric because it had such crazy colours. Because of that it remained untouched in my storage box. Some time ago, I used it with some other fabrics in a mystery quilt project. This quilt is not in use now, because I don't like it at all.

The exercise on "colours" in the Bauhaus project made me think of it again. How would this fabric behave with the completely different colours? This was a highly interesting experience. I started with colours that I would have chosen. Then I used patterned fabrics and finally completely different fabrics that I would never have thought of in my dreams. The conclusion was, dark and warm colours fit better than light and cool colours.

Since I always made pairs, I created a memory game, which you can now enjoy. To illustrate, a pair can be found, for example, on A 4 / D 5, and the two single blocks.  Do not be distracted by the inner lines, it is all about colours! Have fun searching!

By the way, I still have about 120 x 150 cm of this fabric left. If you are interested in working with it, please contact me.
