Vortex by Beth Shutty, 2015

I started with two design goals; improv piecing and gradual color change from white to black. Playing with altered grids on EQ7, I liked the X grid and thought it reminded me of a vortex. I changed the improv block from churn dash to stars to represent white stars passing through the vortex and changing to black. To increase movement toward the vortex, I added the rays of light with fused applique and used diagonal grid quilting. Domestic machine quilting in two different shades of aqua thread adds depth.
