"If life throws you scraps, make a quilt"


Tri Spectra

Come exploring the illusion of overlapping transparent triangles.  The triangles were pieced from strips of fabric using the Paper-piecing method.  Each triangle was pieced separately and then cut into horizontal strips.  The strips of two triangles were alternated when they were sewn back together.  This creates the illusion of more than one triangle occupying the same space.  As the groups of triangles were sewn together, the illusion of long vertical diamonds appeared in the background.
