raw edged

raw edged, Paula Kovarik, 2012-2013

This piece has been on my design wall for over a year. The pic above is only a detail. It started as a failed quilt that I chopped up and reassembled upside down with strips of black and peach colored strips. The raw edges drip into each other to create a nest of layers that appeals to me. Every so often I take it down off the wall and add more stitching. A spiral here, some hand stitching there. It accepts whatever I add with grace and humor. I'm not sure I ever want to finish this one. It would mean that the process would end. And that's been the most satisfying of all that I do in art. The process.
