UNRAVELING THE MYSTERY by Sue Pelland
The Big Bang a truly mystical event that is more complex
than my mind can process.
The Big Bang I envision is a mass of light, energy, the particles
that created the universe, our solar system, and even life itself.
Physics at its best. But I hate Physics!
Unraveling the Mystery 12″ square
When naming the quilt, I couldn’t help but sing my favorite theme song.
Math, Science, Hystory, Unraveling the Mystery that all started with the
I think the lyrics and the Big Bang TV show are both so cleaver.
I was happy to work on this project, humming the tune in my head.
I started with a black fabric, added a layer of black Mistyfuse, a rough cut circle of
gold lame, then Angelina fibers swirling around the miraculous light,
bursting out into the void at immense speeds,
resulting in planets, minerals, water, and life represented in the quilt fill patterns.
What I had envisioned as being encrusted with beads
looked so meticulous and orderly before beading,
I decided I needed to keep it free from the chaos of beads I had planned.
I loved the challenge of getting out of my traditional wrapping
and putting together a more modern look. Thanks Art Squared!
