Design Concept

The design for this quilt came during a sleepless night when I got out of bed, and made a series of ten small drawings to pass the time. The second of those drawings was refined to create the design for this quilt. The final design was enlarged and drawn full size on a four foot square piece of paper to create the templates for this quilt.

The full size cartoon was cut up into individual templates, which were used as patterns for cutting my fabric shapes. The spiky curves were paper pieced directly on the paper templates.

The swirling design is pieced from fabrics which were painted

with dye, or dyed in  gradations of solid colors from light to dark.   Many different colors of cotton and polyester top stitching thread were used for the quilting. Quilting
