Big Hairy Mess

...of yarns sewn around the squares of silk.

Now to tame and control them into a balanced composition. This piece is entered in the "Modern Quilt" category of our upcoming quilt show, so the fringed surface of loose yarns will be much more contained and controlled than on the other art piece I made in this technique with the same materials.
Unraveled IV - 24" x 48"

WOW! I love how you transform these into this amazing finished piece. It will be perfect with I, II, and III.

Nellie, I voted for your piece/Quilt Gallery. It's very different which is what caught my eye. I enjoy that site and vote every wk. I really enjoy your land/sea scapes. I also enjoy doing abstract landscapes. My site is & sell fabric/supplies for quilters. Are you the same Nellie's Needles who has the pattern co.? I came upon it by accident. Peggy McGeary
