Stitched Modules

To conserve precious natural dyes, I tend to work with smaller sections of cloth. My desire to foreground this naturally dyed cloth led me to contemplate quilt modules, which also became a convenient format for a range of hand-applied, stitched surface designs (on top of often patterned cloth). Since that original conception, I began to feature each module as a distinct unit, often framed, presented alone and in sets. A short video below describes aspects of the process.
