Pattern: Original fractal design.
Technique: Hand stitched.
Medium: Hand dyed silk and 37 cotton colourways from P&B Textiles fabric collection “Century of Progress”.
Mankind reaches the top of the cliffs of progress and looks down from a great height at the Mandelbrot Lake floating serenely through clouds.
The hand dyed silk is stitched down with glass beads and embroidery floss. A tiny running stitch secures it to the muslin background.
The edge of the purple Mandelbrot set is appliquéd down and then outlined with embroidery floss.
All the curved pieces are hand seamed and then the whole section is appliquéd onto a muslin background. They are outlined with hand quilting.
To give the effect of hazy clouds floating over the Mandelbrot set tiny glass beads and strands of embroidery floss are stitched down. The vertical lines are hand quilted.
