Design Concept

This is one of a series of quilts in which three dimensional, constructed tucks are pieced into a patterned background.  The background fabric is an upholstery fabric with a tapestry weave pattern.

Each of the 1/2"  "tucks” was constructed from two different fabrics.  The left sides of the tucks are fabrics dyed in a gradation of colors from purple to turquoise.  The right sides of the tucks graduate from olive green to rust. 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.
