Design Concept

This is part of a series in which 1/2", constructed tucks are incorporated into a pieced background.   This is also the fourth in a sub-series exploring various relationships between checks and gradations of rainbow colors. The background is pieced from a 1” striped fabric which was over-dyed in rainbow colors. One side of the tucks is a gradation of rainbow colors, and the opposite sides are made for a ½” black and white stripe, which ends up looking like checks on the tucks.

Successive borders are made from a commercial, rainbow-striped fabric and checks made from a black & white stripe. On the back of the quilt is a traditional “Monkey’s Wrench” block, pieced from black and white stripes and rainbow stripes.
