Techniques: machine and hand quilting, stamping, embellishment, waxing

Statement: The "Motherboard Meltdown" series is a metaphor for stress induced mental breakdown. To see the rest of the computer related series, visit http://www.clvquilts.com

MM V3.1-3.9 is actually nine separate quilts. The 'sashing' is multi-colored, multi-wired, flat ribbon cable. It's semi-transparent and looks really cool at the intersections when backlit. I'm guessing it weighs between 8-10 lbs. It won't tour the quilt circuit because the cable is very flexible and the wax might break off or melt in shipping.
