Artist Statement: "I wanted to adapt and extend Jinny Beyer's concept of hand-sewn diamonds to my fused interwoven strip technique and use tulle shading and color degradation to enhance the 3-D effect as the fireworks explode, expand, and dissipate into the night. In all, there are well over 25,000 patches."
Tecniques: Machine Quilting (Walking Foot), Fused Appliqué, Turned-Edge Fabric fused onto strips of interfacing (which were triaxially interwoven)
Materials: Cotton Fabric, Interfacing, Paper-Backed Fusible, Tulle, Polyester Quilting Threads, Hobbs 80/20 Black Cotton Batting
Design Source: Original Design ; Inspired in a Jinny Beyer class in 2017 entitled Diamonds Galore
