Paola Zanda – Squares

This time it wasn’t easy to find an inspiration regarding this challenge. Looking at the old houses in our village I keep the idea: windows looking on my abstract work.

I create the background with abstract shapes based on a mix of dyed and commercial fabrics all pieced, and I made an appliqué for the windows. The work is quilted by machine.

Material: dyed fabrics with Procion MX, commercial fabrics, wadding and variegated threads.
