Design Concept

The patterns in this quilt were inspired by microscopic photos of natural objects showing repeat patterns at the cellular level. The design began with simple curved shapes in muted fabric from my "Gradations" collection from Benartex, separated by slices of light green patterned fabric from my "Multi-Tye-Dye" collection.

Original line drawing and color study for the background in Corel Draw.
 
After the background was pieced, paper-backed fusible web was overlaid, and the shapes were drawn by hand with pencil. The petal like feathers were cut from two lighter, brighter fabrics from the "Gradations" collection. The quilting extends beyond the shapes in hair-like patterns.
