This quilt is part of a series exploring the illusion of
overlapping transparent triangles. All of the fabrics in
this quilt were designed by Caryl for Benartex and come
from her Gradations and Splash collections. The quilting
was done with polyester top stitching thread, beginning
with a two spirals of flourescent orange #30 top-stitching
thread. The background areas are quilted in swirling organic
patterns in Caryl's signature style, with darker thread
that has less contrast with the underlying fabrics.
Process and Technical Details:
|The quilts in this series 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.
