Design Concept:

This quilt is part of a series exploring the illusion of overlapping transparent triangles. The fabrics in the triangles were designed by Caryl for Benartex and come from her Gradations. The border fabric is from the Matrix collection by Benartex. The quilting is a series of curving lines in gold and olive #30 top-stitching thread from Caryl's Brytes collection for Superior. The lines emerge from the circular patterns in the border and flow over the geometric background of triangles.

Process and Technical Details:
The quilts in this series start with two square blocks with equilateral triangles. Square A has a dark triangle on a light background and Square B has a light triangle on a dark background. The squares are sliced into strips and reassembled with alternating strips from Square A and Square B.
