These three pieces are from 2009. I was experimenting with wool – felting it with a machine (dry felting or needle felting) and felting with water and agitation. I incorporated the resulting fabric into pieces with woven fabric and stitching.
Nine patches are a classic block for quilting, but they also make a nice canvas for experimenting with composition.
