Helen Hazon – Time
This is a fairly simple design based on our fundamental everyday means of measuring time – the sun and stars in the sky, Earth’s movement round the sun and the phases of the moon. The quilted background represents the much more modern theoretical physics concept of Spacetime. The fabrics used are cottons – a mixture of commercial and hand-dyed. The circles were padded before being bonded to the background and stitched down with satin stitch. Silver metallic thread was used for the stars, which include one Northern constellation called The Plough / The Big Dipper / The Great Bear /Ursa Major depending on where you live and who you ask.
