Practice, Practice, Practice

English Paper Piecing. There was (is) a woman in London who buys two lottery tickets a week. Using this technique, each ticket will yield two very fussily cut hexagons which she attaches to the quilt that she’s been assembling for years, four tickets a week (usually). I’m fascinated by scale and her quilt already measured 4’x 10′ with no plans on stopping.

The tickets from the beginning had already softened to the crushed velvet paper texture, the colours already fading. My colours start bright, an isometric interpretation.
