Glyph #1 by Carson Converse, 2014

"The linear nature of a ¼"" seam allowance and the natural translucence of fabric are two elements of quiltmaking that I love and are typically lost in the final quilt. For this quilt I layered two separate pieced tops to form the design. The sub-top is pieced using gradient metallic blue and white fabrics while the top is pieced from thin muslin. The title¸ Glyph #1, pays homage to the creative names given to quilt blocks - the ""skeleton-like"" pattern of seams, created by the otherwise traditional quilt block, feels like the remains of an ancient language."
