Aurora is an exploration of color and line. I wanted to use a simple composition of irregular width lines in a warm color recipe, then add dense texture with free motion stitching. I began by stitching a paisley shape in a wavy line down the middle, then added pebbles and spirals on one side and spirals and jigsaw puzzle pieces on the other.
