8 by 8's, Deco series

This 8 by 8 group titled DECO was created entirely on my old commercial sewing machine. The background of each section consists of various colored cotton fabrics pieced and appliqued. One can barely see the background composition through the rows of stitched threads. The surface embroidery is almost entirely satin stitch in varying widths. I prefer working on my commercial machine for this type of work as it can smoothly  satin stitch up to almost one-half inch wide. Below is a detail showing just one of the 8 by 8 inch squares.
