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 a radiating design of pure, intense, rainbow hues.

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 navy blue to black. The left sides of the tucks are a 44 hue gradation of pure rainbow colors. The use of both 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.

Lattice strips between the horizontal sections of tucks are made from hand painted, rainbow striped fabric.

A radiating, string pieced border draws the eye into the three dimensional center panel of the quilt. The border is constructed from alternating strips of solid graduated colors and hand painted striped fabric.
