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 cool colors, green, blue, purple, and a little chartreuse. 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, and the lime green shapes with a regular sewing machine foot using 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 pebbles. The binding fabric is from my Gradations collection and the backing fabric from my Color Flow collection for Benartex.
