Design Concept

In 2021, as part of my ongoing effort to simplify my work, I designed a series of pieces that combined freeform zigzags, circles, and a few freeform curves. I drew the whole design in Corel Draw, added some digital painting, and had it printed by Spoonflower.com. I graduated many of the shapes from color to color and light to dark. As I arranged the shapes in the design, I made the areas where they overlapped into separate shapes and chose different colors or tones in those shapes to create the illusion that all the shapes are transparent. I quilted the black lines, and the curving turquoise shapes with a regular sewing machine foot (feed dogs up) 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 meander quilting, zigzags, and pebble patterns. The binding fabric was specially designed for this quilt. The backing fabric was hand painted with dye.
