I can't remember a time that I wasn't intrigued with patchwork. It
was this love of working with fabric scraps
that has become my fiber art medium. It also can be an image of
life. Many wonderful memories are part of this coat:
LOVE OF RED: In all its forms, red is a life-long favorite color—a must
for my flowers.
FABRICS: My wool “stash” is not large, but it had my husband's old
Harrod's lambs wool sport coat and some 40-year-old hand-woven Donegal
tweed. Now felted, they’re part of the "sparkle" in my coat.
BEFORE MY MIDDLE-AGE SPREAD: A "too tight" beautiful black wool
crepe skirt is now an important background for my flowers.
The coat is reminiscent of “penny wool
rugs” with folk-art style buttonhole stitched appliqué. It also is like
crazy quilts with the use of silks in some of the flowers, embroidery
stitches for embellishment and irregular shaped piecing.
