Change/Transformation was the theme for this quarter's quilt challenge of The Endeavourers. You can read the purpose of our group HERE, as well as read a brief synopsis of each member's project.
I always begin thinking of ideas for the challenge by finding the definition of the theme.
Transformation was an interesting idea from a mathematical perspective. I actually began a project (see the end of the post for a photo) with the concepts of geometric rotation (turn), translation (slide), and reflection (flip), resizing, congruent, and similar. But I stopped, it seemed too medallion-like, and chose to make something I haven't made yet.
Instead, I chose to think of CHANGE and the change in color when paints are mixed...or when different colors of tissue paper overlapped.
I gathered some fabrics from my scraps and fat quarters that looked as if they would make the transparency effect when sewn.
This is the quilt top sewn:
I will say the quilting CHANGED the appearance of the top.
I have never done such intricate quilting. I used my walking foot and a disappearing fabric marker to mark lines. Two layers of polyester batting were used so the triangles puffed.
This is after being quilted (17" x 16"):

Here is the Transformation project I began. I will finish it.
