Chaos- Is Our Nation Unraveling?

When the word chaos appeared, I knew exactly what I wanted to create. Using my son's help, we generated a picture of the Capitol and words using Microsoft Publisher. After printing the picture and text onto fabric, I then used some of my painted fusible for laying over the top of the picture.
Big stitch hand quilting was randomly added in the blank spaces. I wanted to add thread work, to make it appear that the unraveling of our Nation is happening in front of our very eyes.

I love our Country and feel that in the preceding year chaos had overtaken our government. When this will all end I have no idea. I crave what is lost, and pray that those principals our Nation was founded upon will not perish.


  1. Wow, what a great Chaotic image. I feel more like the country is coming back together but I really like your image. I like the photo images, words and threads all about. Very well done!

  2. Wonderful visual definition of chaos, Kaye!

  3. I really like your work. And your son is pretty talented too.
