Triple Play

15.25″ wide x 30.25″ high

Second in The Triangle Variations series, Triple Play is made from three horizontal units joined in a column.

But the separateness of the units is intentionally blurred by quilting that defines new shapes and new lines.

  • Concentric stitching, as in Twofer, creates a diamond from adjacent triangles. This gives the quilt an edge-to-edge focal point that straddles the top and middle unit.
  • Stitched diagonals join up in the middle and lower left of the quilt, forming a new group of triangles that enlivens a swath of grey.
  • The same diagonals on the right side of the quilt begin to mirror those on the left … until they’re interrupted by a blue triangle with zigzag quilting.
