Center Diamond Amish Quilt 1915

This Center Diamond Pattern is from Lancaster Pa around 1915-25. I appreciate the contrast between the simplicity of the over all geometric pattern and the complexity of the stitches and colors. The color scheme is a triad of a purple, green, and blue contrasted with a brilliant red. Each color has a seperate stitched pattern with in its square. From a distance you see the color but up close you see the individual stitches. I try to create this relationship of distance/detail in my own work.
