Einstein's Tablecloth, Haiku (5,7,5)
90cmh x 113w
Responding to a challenge to 'be inspired by Japanese fabric', I chanced upon a roll of 40's vintage Japanese silk, already stitched in a long strip and bizarrely cut full of holes. Seeking to manipulate the fabric as little as possible, I decided upon this 'visual haiku' format. As I patched the holes, hand pieced and quilted (the quilting lines are about 1/8 inch apart), it became a meditation on how we use and value time.
