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, Ombre Stripe, and Splash collections.
The quilting was done with polyester top stitching thread,
beginning with a series of horizontal and diagonal feathered
plumes crossing the quilt from top to bottom. The background
areas are quilted in spirals and crescents, 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.
