This tiny postcard sized quilt was made as a gift for the founder of the Q & A quilt art group based in Northern Virginia. Vexing but interesting working SO small..

Techniques used in this piece:

  • each layer is appliquéd;
  • the background to the Mandelbrot set is hand embroidered using outline stitch and cotton embroidery floss;
  • the Mandelbrot set is outlined with hand embroidered French knots;
  • the piece is machine quilted.
