Sparkles and streamers were the inspiration. This piece is built up from a base of silvery faux leather, with strips of satins, sheers and ribbons sandwiched between the base and the grey background square placed on top (barely visible between the rows). The whole sandwich wa stitched with vertical parallel lines, then the layers are slashed between the first lines of stitching, bent in alternate directions and stitched again along the horizontal to create the wavy pattern.
