Peace Prize (Prayer Flag)


20″ x 16″


Cotton fabric, fusible web, batting


Fused raw edge applique, photo transfer, machine and hand stitched


Knots & Tangles

Creating the hard edges of letters to convey the sense of a printed ticket was a new trick for me to learn. Some of them were done by photo transfer and others by accurately cut and fused fabric.


My critique group created a string of prayer flags for a group exhibit. I made this and one about my hip replacement.

I was taken with the idea of lottery tickets offering valuable yet abstract prizes, and wondered if they would be played as obsessively as those with potential immediate gratification.
