Quilted Nerve Cells

 Quilted Nerve Cells
The nerve cells are outline quilted with a metalic thread with wool batting, so they are puffy and round. The background is quilted with monofilament that is clear enough to not cover the nerve-like designs in the hand dyed fabric, but it sparkles just enough to be seen. This piece is about 10 inches square.

    This is so gorgeous, what are the dimensions? I watched “What the Bleep” recently and I saw a clip there that reminded me of this piece.

    I described your quilted stem and nerve cells to a young man taking out a book on stem cells at the library yesterday. He was captivated!!! And my word picture didn’t do them justice. What would he have thought of the “real” thing??
