Chaos: Beverly H.

When I started thinking about how I would interpret this word, I knew I had to go beyond the dictionary meaning. I chose to interpret something that I find chaotic-probably a sign of increasing age! As I thought about just what it would be, freeway driving was the first thing to pop into my mind. I grew up learning to drive on the freeways of Southern California, and I've come to this- I hate it!

I used discharged and overdyed fabric. It's machine pieced, hand embroidered and beaded, and machine quilted. I'm pleased enough with how this came out that I've decided to expand on the idea, maybe in different colors. Once I got started, it just seemed to take on a life of its own.


  1. I don't think I've ever seen chaos looking so good! I love the colors and beads.
