The work of Tamara Leberer inspired me to use silk fusion to make a mosaic. It has been a real treat to play with this idea; I love the way the silk shimmers and the one-inch squares – each different than the next – blend and merge together to produce these beautiful pieces. I make the silk fusion using silk roving and my-hand dyed silk “hankies.” After the fusion is dry I iron on Misty Fuse, a sheer fusible web. Then I cut the silk into 1-inch squares and began to place them. I then layer the backing, batting and top and stitch around each square twice using a wiggly stitch line that gives it a natural tile look.
