In my ongoing effort to simplify my work I decided to design a piece that combined freeform zigzags, circles, and a few freeform curves. I drew the whole design in Corel Draw and had it printed by Spoonflower.com. I chose to limit my palette to secondary colors, green, orange, purple, and a little golden yellow. As I arranged the shapes in the design, I made the places where they overlapped into separate shapes and chose duller colors in those shapes to create the illusion that all of the shapes are transparent. I quilted the black lines and the wavy aqua shapes with a regular sewing machine foot and in the rest of the quilt I used free-motion quilting in many different colors of thread and a different pattern in each area.
The strips for the matching binding were designed, painted, and printed at the same time as the quilt top.
