Design Concept

This design grew out of my series in which I combine freeform zigzags, circles, and a few freeform curves. In this case, I turned the circles into ellipses that ended up looking like eggs. I drew and painted the whole design in Corel Draw and had it printed by Spoonflower.com. As I arranged the shapes in the design, I made the areas where they overlapped into separate shapes and chose lighter, duller colors in those shapes to create the illusion that all the shapes are transparent. I shaded each shape from light to dark or color to color the create the illusion of an inner glow. Each of the ellipses also seems to fade away along one edge.  I quilted the black lines and the wavy yellow shapes with a regular sewing machine foot (feed dogs up) and heavy #30 top stitching thread, and in the rest of the quilt I used free-motion quilting (feed dogs down) in many different colors of polyester & acrylic thread.

The top and right bindings were designed especially for this quilt. The backing fabric is from my Splash collection for Benartex.

To create this design I did a 90º rotation of the design for Zigzags & Ellipses #1, flipped it upside down, and stretched it to form a vertical rectangle. The colors are the compliments (opposite on the color wheel) of the colors in Zigzags & Ellipses #1.
