This quilt is a visual expression of a philosophical concept. The design began in Corel Draw, with a series of checks, which I filled with a gradation from red to white to blue. A photo of one of my original hand painted fabrics was placed in the background. I erased the background from a recent portrait and used a transparency tool to apply a gradient of varying opacity. This was centered over the multicolored checks creating a shadowy image. A black border was added and the whole image was printed by Spoonflower.
With variegated thread, I quilted along the edges of the checks. The backing fabric is from my ColorFlow collection for Benartex.
