Design Concept

This design was inspired by citric acid crystals photographed under a microscope. They looked like an abstract expressionist painting.

The fabrics are from my Gradations collection for Benartex. In the quilting I used dozens of different colors of thread, shading each area with at least two different colors, often contrasting with the colors underlying fabrics. Most of the quilting zigzags in straight lines to suggest the crystalline structure that inspired the design.
