14,733 - Woot!

Width: 12" Length: 9"

Materials/Techniques: This is a crazy quilt, machine pieced using velvets, velveteen, and I think that beige piece is micro suede. The velvety fabrics are cut mostly from really ugly bridesmaid dresses (I can't imagine who else would've worn those things) or other recycled clothing. I'm not entirely sure where the micro suede came from. It is hand embellished using various embroidery techniques including the braided Hungarian stitch, featherstitch, herringbone stitch, fly stitch, French knots, bouillon knots, buttonhole stitch and several variations of the venerable chain stitch.

Artist Statement: "Woot!" is a modern celebratory exclamation - like "Yay!" or "Huzzah!” - typically accompanied by a fist-bump (as opposed to a high-five). Usage: "There's bacon for breakfast?! Woot!" Sometimes spelled w00t with zeros for the "o"s.

Dedication: To Grandma Kaky - who did not have Alzheimer’s. Woot!
