LURKERS AND LIVE WIRES
15" x 15"

Techniques/Methods

Color washed commercial fabric, sun-printed, stamped, appliqued, free-motion quilted, beaded.

Statement

The "shadow" figures represent those who don't participate as much as the "live wires" appliqued in commercial fabrics.  Free-motion quilting is done in the "binary code" of ones and zeros, along with some stamping of the code.  Beads represent the "threads" of conversations, each message a sparkly jewel in itself, some threads changing topic as it proceeds, but all adding to the beauty that is QuiltArt!!!!
