Fallen Snow on a Starry Night

or, Starry Night over Fallen Snow. 

I am so excited to share with you my three year spanning project. Finally! 

Fallen Snow on a Starry Night uses early nineteenth century sewn rug techniques with a play on Vincent van Gogh’s Starry Night. 

Each area of the rug is created with folded strips or gathered “chenille” wool, sewn to a linen base. This rug has three whites, six blues, and two greens. To my delight after finishing it, I found the rug changes in different light. 

Here are some of the progress photos. 

Btw, this project is Clara approved.

    • Yes, it will be hung. It will out a pocket in the back for a rod after it has some time to relax the fibers to lay flat. The edges want to curl where I went right to the edge of the frame.
