This is one of a series of quilts, exploring the illusion
of overlapping transparent triangles. Some of the triangles
were pieced from strips of fabric, hand dyed in a gradation
from black to white. The other triangles were cut from solid
black and a hand painted black and white fabric.
The triangles were assembled into two squares and then cut
into horizontal strips. The strips of the two squares were
alternated when they were sewn back together. This creates
the illusion of more than one triangle occupying the same
space. A narrow border of black surrounds the center triangles,
followed by a wider border of dye painted fabric in black
white and grey. A binding of solid black finishes the quilt.
In contrast to the geometry of the pieced design, the quilting
was done in a freeform, swirling, organic design with black
