After years of creating quilt art, particularly my thread-painted landscapes, I realized that I love thread even more than I love fabric. This lead me to develop a series of sculptures, made only of free-motion stitched threads. It is a multistep process, involving much planning in order to go from a flat surface of threads to a three-dimensional object.
