Design Concept

The design for this quilt came during a sleepless night when I got out of bed, and made a series of ten small drawings to pass the time. The second of those drawings was refined to create the design for this quilt. The final design was enlarged and drawn full size on a three by four foot rectangular piece of paper to create the templates for this quilt. Much of this quilt was pieced directly onto the long curving paper templates, following pencil lines drawn on the back to achieve precision.   Before piecing I cut strips of fabric in color and value (light to dark) gradations and layed them out on my ironing table in arrangements I call intersecting color and value gradations.

The areas between this complex piecing were then filled with larger pieces of fabric which was hand painted with dye in many different patterns and colors.
