Design Concept

This is one of a series of quilts in which three dimensional, constructed tucks are incorporated into a patterned background.  A commercially printed fabric was used in the background. 

Each of the  1/2"  "tucks"  was constructed from two  different fabrics.  The right sides of the tucks were made from fabrics dyed in a  gradation of light to dark purple and turquoise.   The left sides of the tucks were dyed in a gradation from turquoise to black. The use of color   gradations, and the twisting of the tucks from side to side, create the illusion of movement and light across the surface of the quilt.

A radiating, string pieced border draws the eye into the three dimensional center panel.  It is constructed of alternating strips of the color gradations used to make the tucks.
