Hanging by a Thread - an original design by Gwyned Trefethen

Hanging by a Thread

47” H x 28” W
January 2005

Blue World/Green World, a Fiber Artists Coalition touring exhibit includes Hanging by a Thread.



Creating a quilt is a journey. Each whisper from the muse leads away from the planned destination. It requires faith to follow the muse. Hanging by a Thread’s original concept was to pay homage to M. C. Escher. It was to be a geometrical quilt in muted and saturated hues. The spider and fly were not part of the original intention. Trust in the muse allowed for modification, reinvention and eventually the ability to slice off half the quilt. Only then did the muse share the metaphor of the quilt, a relationship dance of patience and choice.
