eGoli - city of gold
eGoli, City of Gold
This is a very experimental quilt. I decided to try out the new technique of machine needle lace to create the threads of gold inside the cut-out letters spelling the name 'eGoli' - one of several names for the city of Johannesburg.
It is, in fact, two quilts. The smaller front art quilt hangs in front of the larger back whole cloth quilt, and sandwiched in between are several LED lights. When illuminated the LEDs provide a glow that shines through the cut-out letters, highlighting the golden threads of needle lace. I wanted to experiment with incorporating e-textiles in my work and this project seemed the perfect place to begin.
