Design Concept

This is one of the very first quilts I made from my own hand-dyed fabrics. The design is based on concentric hexagons. Each successive hexagon is twisted slightly to give a spiraling movement to the design. Hand-dyed fabrics in 10-step color progressions are used to give depth and movement to the design. The quilting accentuates the curving movement of the spirals.
