Chagall's Blue Window ACEO

Continuing with my series representing Chagall's stained glass windows from the Fraumunster Church, here is my Blue Window ACEO. The blue window is known as the Law Window, since it features Moses with the stone tablets representing the eternal law of God.

In addition to 3 or 4 different blue fabrics, I added touches of green, yellow and a couple of complimentary orange pieces in the center.

I sometimes feel like it is cheating to use complements in my quilt art. It's like a trick that will always work to make an art quilt, no matter how small, look interesting and draw a second look from a viewer. I guess that's why they call them compliments?
