Design Concept

In my ongoing effort to simplify my work I decided to design a series of pieces 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 areas where they overlapped into separate shapes and chose duller colors in those shapes to create the illusion that all the shapes are transparent. I quilted the black lines, the circles, and the wavy aqua shapes with a regular sewing machine foot heavy, #30 top-stitching thread. In the rest of the quilt, I used free-motion quilting with many different colors of thread and several different patterns, including circles combined with meanders, zigzags, and echoing crescent shapes. The strips for the matching binding were designed, painted, and printed at the same time as the quilt top. The backing fabric is from my Color Flow collection for Benartex.
