The spinning shape of a deep-space galaxy was the inspiration for this atmospheric quilt.
A large equilateral triangle in deep blue cotton chintz is decorated with three interlocking spirals of square shapes in tones of blue, gold and cream. The squares are appliquéd using machine satin stitch. Many of these squares use my own dyed, painted and textured fabrics, some of which you'll see on the close-up photos.
The background is quilted by machine in an overlapping pattern of stitching lines that echoes the expanding spiral shape of the design. I’ve added numerous dots of glittery fabric paint in blue and gold, plus a few star-shaped sequins, to suggest other, more distant galaxies …
The quilt is backed with plain navy blue, and the edges are bound with the same fabric.
A hidden casing at the top back will hold your own batten/hanging pole.
The quilt will be sent to you cushioned with reusable bubble-wrap, and packed into a cardboard box (recycled when possible). Hanging pole and fixings are not included.
Size: each side of the triangle measures 6ft (2m)
I created this quilt for an exhibition with the theme of Travelling Light; I thought that it would be fun to play with the idea of light, travelling …! The light travels out from the almost white centre of the galaxy, through shades of gold, into pale and then deeper blues towards the edge of the galaxy. One of the squares in each arm of the spiral includes the equation E+Mc2: part of Albert Einstein's theory of special relativity. Apparently. (As you can probably tell, I'm not a physicist …)
