JUDY MARTIN : Rough couching, over raveled weft threads, un-separated floss, and narrow strips of denim. It evokes Starry Night. "The threads and fabrics are familiar things used in an unfamiliar way. What is usually used to make a neat seam or a mended pocket, is used here in a messy and raveled manner."

Daniela Maschera : For this second interpretation in fabric I made a sandwich of a printed cotton, grey lining, curtain fabric and tarlatan, stitched them all together with randomly wavy lines and cut irregular diamond areas to reveal the background layer in different ways. Technique: wadded quilting.

Boro is a Japanese word for "tattered rags". It refers to the way people used to recycle small pieces of fabric. These complex blue textile pieces tell stories about Japanese families, their rural way of life, and economic situation in the northern part from the Edo to the early Showa period (17th -  20th century). Each piece is handed down from generation to generation. For decades traces of darning and quilting were added to increase their lifespan.
