“Fort Snozzberry was inspired by the exploration of radial symmetry, the vibrations of color, and the power of negative space.
My design process for this quilt started with setting up a grid of half-square triangles, sliced through the center to make 8 mirrored wedges. I began forming different shapes and layers by spinning the triangles around and playing with color placement.
Stepping back, I was most intrigued with how the background flowed through the design like a moat. I imagined a bird’s eye view of a fortress and started gently brushing away more bits of color, carving out pathways and balancing the vibrant color palette.
One of the things I love about this quilt is how the energetic busyness comes together to create a mesmerizing, chaotic calmness.”
