Fantastic Fuschia Fantasies

Finally it snowed in Chicago. So it’s white all around. Perfect time for another color post. This time, let’s think pink … or fall for fuschia … or root for raspberry! First here’s a moodboard I created. Chill for awhile in this restful area. Then ascend the pink stairs to the exotic city streets above:

This place exists only in imagination. So let’s look at some real pink spaces you can visit and pink things you can touch …

This is a stunning quilt called “Mumbai” made by artist Rita Dijkstra and featured at World of Threads Festival:

According to World of Threads, this India-inspired quilt is made of cotton, oil crayons, rubber, silk threads, organza, beads and angelwire. The rubbings are made with oil crayons and stamped with gold paint. The quilt is layered with organza, and quilted with waves, some accented with beads and sequins. I would love art like this for display!

  1. The amulets on your pink cord are called TAWIZ. They are muslim and the hollow ones hold prayers, the others stave off illness and bad luck.
