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, and looking at them close up. The larger than life flower forms do not represent any particular botanical species.
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 values from white to turquoise to black. The left sides of the tucks are a fabric that was painted in shades of green to represent grass and leaves.. The use of light to dark 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 surrounds the three dimensional center panel. The border extends the background of yellow flower forms, while drawing the eye back into the center panel.
