Design Concept

This is one of a series of quilts in which constructed tucks are incorporated into a pieced background.. Each of the 1/2" tucks was constructed from two different fabrics. The left sides of the tucks are gray and black. The right sides are a series of gold to bronze to yellow tones. The twisting of the tucks from side to side creates the illusion of movement and light across the surface of the quilt.

The background was string-pieced in fan shapes in shades of black, gray and gold. The pieced background was then cut into 1 1/2" strips and pieced back together with a tuck in each seam allowance.

A traditional Log Cabin block is pieced into the back of the quilt.
