pieced work using my hand printed fabric inspired by Agnes’s post about half squares triangles.

“since we are all living on the edge in a balancing act of survival we suddenly see the edge of things emerge as a focus of design. unfinished edges, undone hems and deconstructed brims are all baring witness of a negligence full of purpose to leave the edges raw as if to better show the materialization of the piece.”
