Design Concept:

This quilt is part of a series exploring the illusion of overlapping transparent triangles. All of the fabrics in this quilt were designed by Caryl for Benartex and come from her Gradations, Ombre Stripe, and Splash collections. The quilting was done with polyester top stitching thread, beginning with a series of horizontal and diagonal feathered plumes crossing the quilt from top to bottom. The background areas are quilted in spirals and crescents, with darker thread that has less contrast with the underlying fabrics.

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.
