HOW FAR I HAVE COME
15" x 15"

Techniques/Methods

Basic fabric is painted light cotton canvas, cut into squares and sewn together. I stamped gold circles using Lumiere. Upper left is a small amount of traditional squares covered with tulle and embrossed with buttons and some beads. The larger piece also has beads as well as gold cord and yarn around the edge.

Statement

My "how far I have come" reminds me of how I began to create pieces leaving the traditional design behind. I began to learn from Quiltart after 9/11.  I love what others who are artists do that help me think of new ideas.
