Ribbon Candy Quilt

Enjoy the kinetic color play developed in this quilt.

Triangles of candy-colored solids pieced into spiraling ribbons take on a translucent effect when colors are chosen carefully to look like they’re overlapping and mixing. The zigzag ribbon shape was inspired by a music poster, and while graphic designers may have an easier time overlaying colors on a computer screen or with colored acetate, we quilters just need a healthy stash of solids to emulate the effect.
