Outside the Box by Jenny Voss, 2014

Outside the Box begins with 140 edge-turned machine appliqued ovals that radiate from the center. After being drawn to the dark center, I wanted the viewer's eyes to move outward around the lightening circle. Here, the eyes meet the quilted squares in the background. Individual, overlapping squares were quilted with monochromatic thread. I wanted the quilted squares to offer contrast and texture without any use of colored thread. Outside the Box is then finished off with a pleated binding. When stretched out, there is enough binding for a king-sized quilt! Nampa, Idaho, United States 37" x 40"
