Dawn Tan Here we can observe what can be made when taking the quilting and intervening of fabrics to the extreme in what refers to scale, shape and concept. The large scale of the pieces and the loud aesthetic inherent to the products they are mimicking make a loud comment on objects of daily human consumption.
I ❤ crazy quilting . . . Made of over 100 pieces of fabric. I machine stitched them to the cotton canvas with free-motion embroidery. The star shapes are meant to be a pattern of floating seeds. The silhouettes are mainly machine stitched, but the tips are hand embroidered with tiny French knots with a single thread of floss. There are small gold stitches scattered around the background, that don't really show here. The colours may seem a bit unreal, but I have seen these colours in nature.
