metal four patch

this quilt square measures about 4 square inches

I "sewed" it with copper wire

I didn't take pictures of the process
but I will with the next one
and give you a step by step
I am so pleased with the contrasting grunginess and elegance of it
modern day wabi sabi
speeded up
faked up
but nonetheless
beautiful in it's wear

I'm seeing a whole ceiling lined with these -- sort of a variation of the old tin ceilings --

Love this! Can't wait to hear about the background too. Wouldn't these all be great in a row or a grouping on the wall?

So cool! I love how your mind works!! I can see a large grouping of these in a weathered wood frame..or crisp black to really showcase the tin.
