Design Concept

This is one of a series of quilts in which three dimensional, constructed tucks are incorporated into a patterned background.  The background consists of strips of solid black and solid white, broken by strips of 1" black and white checks.  Each of the  1/2"  "tucks"  was constructed from two  different fabrics.  The right sides of the tucks were made from alternating strips of warm red and fuchsia fabrics.   The left sides of the tucks are small black and white checks.  A border of checks and dots frames the three dimensional center.
