This quilt is part of a series exploring the illusion of
overlapping transparent triangles. 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 feathers are quilted in lighter colored
threads that contrast with the background, and the negative
spaces between the feathers are quilted in concentric loops,
with variagated thread that blends with the underlying fabrics.
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. All of the fabrics in this
quilt were designed by Caryl for Benartex and come from her
Gradations and Splash collections.
