Design Concept

This is one of a series of quilts in which three dimensional, constructed tucks are incorporated into a patterned background. The background fabric was painted with fiber reactive dyes in large flower and leaf patterns. These patterns represent the feeling of being among flowers in a watery environment, and looking at them close up, however the flower forms do not represent any particular botanical species.

Each of the 57, 1/2" "tucks" was constructed from two different fabrics. The right sides of the tucks were made from fabrics dyed in a gradation of pure rainbow hues. The left sides of the tucks were dyed in a value (light to dark) gradation of turquoise. The use of color and value gradations, and the twisting of the tucks from side to side, create the illusion of movement and light across the surface of the quilt. Because different colors are used on the right and left sides of the three dimensional tucks, the appearance of the quilt can be changed dramatically by changing your point of view.
