Felted Balls for flower centers

This is a public art project for the New Childrens Hospital in Pittsburgh Pennsylvania . It was an artist residency provided by the Pennsylvania Council on the Arts and the Pittsburgh Center for the Arts where I was an artist in residence before moving to Columbus Ohio in January 2009. The participants for this project were 2 seperate groups of students from the YWCA summer camp and the Abraxas Girls School .The flowers and leaves on this 3 d quilted sculpture are part of a larger project and contain prayers for the children in the hospital. This multi faceted project allowed the participants to experience a range of fiber art activities such as regular and shibori dying, sewing and beading, felting and quilting.
