Rainbow Transparency Skinny Quilt. Techniques used: machine piecing; illusion of transparency. Machine pieced and quilted. Finished size: 14.25″ by 45″. The selection of the fabrics create the illusion of transparency, but in actuality the fabrics are all pieced – there is no actual overlapping of fabrics. I used a solid medium gray for the background, and a mottled gray-charcoal-black for the binding. The background was quilted with free-motion organic, mostly straight lines.
