Unwind

Internet research and the fabric inspired my ‘unwind’ design. Foundation piecing from the centre, highlighted with a central silver thread, draws the eye. Other layers were pieced to give the 3D illusion, using hues of blue Oakshott fabric quilted in the direction of the pieces, to give a vortex effect, with the white negative space quilted in a consistent direction.
