Shadowfold Play I Quilt

The center motif of this small art quilt is an exercise in using the techniques from the book Shadowfolds by Jeffrey Rutzky and Chris Palmer.  The book is full of interesting was to make geometric designs by creating folds in fabric.
Using border fabric I added a mitered border.  The border is machine quilted.  I used the beads to quilt the center motif which was made using white fabric.  There is a layer of blue-green fabric between the quilt and the batting so the folds show more.  The quilt measures 9.5 in square.
Here is a close up to show the border, the folds, and the beads.
The back is a lovely gold fabric with triangles for ease of hanging.  A bamboo skewer is used along with a picture hanging hook.
