"Some say in ice.
From what I've tasted of desire
I hold with those who favor fire.
But if it had to perish twice,
I think I know enough of hate
to say that for destruction ice
Is also great
and would suffice" -- Robert Frost
I wanted to do a combo piece but also wanted to follow the rules. I think a companion piece would be similar - perhaps more prismatic than flowing.
Randomly pieced blocks, fused with free form cut shapes. I tried bonding powder to no avail, so I covered the whole thing with red tulle and quilted with gold thread.
The part I liked the best was that I used no templates. I formulated the idea in my head and ran with it. I am loosening up a lot.
