MINDLESS MEANDER

This series started in 2015 as a therapeutic distraction, during a very stressful time. Something to mindlessly stitch as a way to unwind. The meditative process of slow stitching lowers the heart rate and clears the head, even if just for a few brief moments. Anna now does a little bit of stitching every day.
These Black & White quilts have been made into wall art but there is approx 50 more mini quilts in a variety of colours that have been stitched and are currently being made into their final 3D forms. So watch this space. #MindlessMeander

Mindless Meander - Black & White

April 2017

Finalist: 'Changing Threads' Contemporary Fibre Art Awards, The Refinery Art Space, Nelson

This series started as a therapeutic distraction, during a very stressful time, something to mindlessly stitch as a way to unwind. The meditative process of slow stitching lowers the heart rate and clears the head, even if just for a few brief moments. I now do a little bit of stitching every day.

 

Materials and techniques:

A series of irregular shaped mini quilts were created by hand piecing and hand quilting a variety of discarded scraps onto wool blanket pieces, which let the existing shape of the materials guide the design. The edges of two completely different shaped quilts were then joined, with a quilt-as-you-go binding, to see what 3D forms and folds could be created.
