Q89 – Tetrishead – Wall Hanging - Quilt

Good Wet Afternoon,

This certainly t’ain’t sunny Florida. The street’s flooded and the water is cresting at the top of the pool. Alas, alas, it is the minions of Hurricane Irene.

But we continue to quilt, and I would like to introduce to you our new quilt and wall hanging, Tetrishead.

Tetrishead is the first of our new Cathedral Windows Series. My intention with the design of our Cathedral Windows Series is to see how we can push and play with fabric and thread to give the viewer that element of memory, time, and space. The inspiration of Zoë Keating’s moving cello composition Tetrishead was my inspiration for the title. I adapted the arrangement of for our Cathedral Windows based on English graphic designer Gary Clarke, whose ‘nom de plume’ is Graphic Nothing.

The dimensions of Tetrishead are: Width – 39” (99 cms); Length – 48” (122 cms). The majority of 100% cotton fabrics were designed by Katie PM for Marcus Brothers Textiles. The separating grey cloud fabric is a product of Timeless Treasures Fabrics. Our quilting includes three stylings; horizontal lines in each of the rectangles and squares; an accented quilting of highlighting the clouds; and a subtle connection of the actual window.

Here are some more images and close-ups of Tetrishead.
