Statement: My first "Variations on a Grid" was inspired by a tile wall hanging I saw in Oaxaca. While working on it, I thought - "Wow, I could do a second version using the hand made paper I bought in Oaxaca." The natural fibres and colours used to create the hand made paper are reflected in the stamping and stitching on the 'tiles'. The linen background was a beautiful complement to the textures of the paper.

Materials/Techniques: Hand made paper, tulle, linen, cotton batting and backing, machine stitched and quilted, stamping, hand stitching.
