This quilt is part of a series exploring the illusion of
overlapping transparent triangles. It is based on the 2010
update of Caryl's Illusion pattern. All of the fabrics in
this quilt were designed by Caryl for Benartex and come
from her "Gradations" and "Multi-Tye-Dye"
collections. The quilting is all free-motion, beginning
with two long feathered plumes in irridescent green thread.
The remainder of the quilting was done freehand in Caryl's
Process and Technical Details:
To make the quilts in this series, I start
with two square blocks with equilateral triangles. Square
A has a dark triangle on a light background and Square
B has a light triangle on a dark background. The squares
are sliced into strips and reassembled with alternating
strips from Square A and Square B.
