Fractal Ribbons. A new fractal quilt created for exhibition in conjunction with the High Fiber Diet group – “Making Our Mark”. The quilt is hand stitched, with silk ribbon embroidery and hand quilted lines. It is 24″ square.

Our guidelines were to design a piece using neutral colours such as black, brown, grey, white etc. Along with no more than 25% other color.

In total 36 pieces were chosen, a core group plus alternatives.
