Design Concept

This is one of a series of quilts in which three dimensional, constructed tucks are incorporated into a patterned background. The background fabric was painted with fiber reactive dyes, in an abstract design. 

Each of the ½"  "tucks” was constructed from two different fabrics.  The right sides of the tucks are one gradation, and the left sides are a second gradation. The use of color gradations, and the twisting of the tucks from side to side, create the illusion of movement and light across the surface of the quilt.

A radiating, string pieced border draws the eye into the three dimensional center panel.  It is constructed of alternating strips of painted fabric and the color gradations used to make the tucks.
