This is one of a series of quilts in which
three dimensional, constructed tucks are incorporated into
a patterned background. The background fabric is from my
Aurora Borealis collection from Benartex.
Each of the three dimensional tucks is pieced from two
different fabrics. The left sides of the tucks are black.
The right sides are a gradation of yellow, orange and fuchsia
from my "gradations" collection from Benartex.
The use of the color gradation creates the illusion of movement
and light across the surface of the quilt.
Because different colors are used on the right and left
sides of the tucks, the appearance of the quilt can be changed
significantly by changing your point of view. I like to
call the quilts in this series "viewer participation
