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 kind of radiating, freeform design of rainbow colors.
Each of the ½” "tucks” was constructed from two different fabrics. The left sides of the tucks were made from fabrics dyed in a gradation of rainbow hues. The left sides of the tucks are black. The 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 black border surrounds the center panel and is followed by a wider border of the painted background fabric and a black binding.
