"Techno Jam Version 1.4: Mixed Berry Jelly"
3.9"x4.9" © Carolyn Lee Vehslage 2004 NFS
Materials: cottons, paper, beads, recycled computer components, found
Techniques: foundation paper piecing, machine quilting, embellishment.
Statement: The "Techno Jam" series takes a light-hearted look at being
'certifiably crazy'. V1.4: Mixed Berry Jelly is based on the Victorian
crazy quilt design. The theme is about computers and electronics
getting 'jammed up' and how marmalades, jellies, and preserves can be
sticky and messy.
This tiny quilt block has a few 'computer bugs' buzzing around to
pollinate the flowers of the fruit trees. Now that mankind can 'grow'
computer chips in the lab, where does nature end and technology begin?
