Design Concept

This quilt is part of a series exploring the illusion of overlapping transparent triangles. The quilting was done with polyester top stitching thread, beginning with a series of diagonal feathered plumes.

The feathers are quilted in darker colored threads that contrast with the background, and the negative spaces between the feathers are quilted in a mixture of organic patterns with threads that blend, in most places, with the underlying fabrics.

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. All of the fabrics in this quilt were designed by Caryl for Benartex and come from her Gradations and Splash collections.
