The Hoffman Challenge 2016

This is my entry The Butterfly Effect.
1st place Clothing.


I used both the black and the white Challenge Fabrics and a lot of butterfly fabrics.

I used black textile paint to make the transition between the two.

On the skirt I added faces, cocoons and more black butterflies.
For those I used stencils and thermo-fax screens and machine embroidery.
There is a lot of empty space as well.

The collar has 3D black butterflies.

The top is made from the black Challenge fabric with a lot of extra butterflies added.

The Butterfly Effect
The concept that small events can have large, widespread consequences.
When we make even a tiny alteration to nature, we shall never know what would have happened if we had not disturbed it.
When small imprecisions matter greatly, the world is radically unpredictable.

Can we still reverse global warming, pollution, environmental disasters?

The Hoffman Challenge quilts will be traveling through the USA for a year.
