Scraps' power

I have been inspired by the Theory of Colors. The academic traditional color weel is revisited: small apparently insignificant scraps create a color explosion in a widening solid black space. 
This modern interpretation of J. Itten "farbkreis" features high contrast and concentric machine quilting, able to keep pieces together. Design process combines different shapes and dimension like a mosaic: the result is a soft wild surface.
Improvisation brings scraps to new life : recycling is the Modern choice!

"PHI 1,618..."

My desire was to create a Modern Patchwork representation of Fibonacci sequence.
The title recalls a black and gray fabrics progression following the determined proportion of 1,61803398875 (called "Phi"). 
The design process respects a severe mathematical ratio; squares follow the Golden numbers (1, 1, 2, 3, 5, 8, 13, 21...) and the patterns outcome gives shape to the Golden Spiral.
The graphic areas, like the bold orange diagonal, underline the geometric design of this rule. A gray scale follows the spiral and white straight lines quilting remains minimalist.

WRAPPED PENCIL CASE

This is the awesome soft case that I made for my son Mattia to keep his  calligraphy set.

"COMPULSIVE SEWING" Quilt

Last week it wasn't a good period for me and my family...my mind was "disconnected". The only thing that I was able to do was...to turn over the scraps' basket and begin to sew one scrap to an other scrap...two scraps with two others...and so on...without rules...without measures...only sewing on!
So... this is my "COMPULSIVE SEWING" Quilt





It is very special for me because it was my therapy!
