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 a swooping, freeform design of rainbow colors. 

Each of the ½”  "tucks” was constructed from two different fabrics.  The right sides of the tucks were made from fabrics dyed in a gradation of rainbow hues.  The left sides of the tucks are light to dark gradations of purple and navy. The use of light to dark 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 narrow purple border surrounds the center panel and is followed by a wider border of the painted background fabric.
