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, in curving lines, concentric circles, and spirals that grow out of the border fabric. The border fabric is a commercial, novelty fabric from Benartex. All of the other fabrics in this quilt were designed by Caryl for Benartex and come from her Gradations collection.
The quilts in this series start with two square blocks with isosceles 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.
