|Enso - Machine Appliqued|
Methods Used: The design for "Enso" was drawn and then painted. The process was freeing. Once finalized, the design was then enlarged and templates were made using poster board for each section. A machine applique method was used to piece the quilt top. All fabrics used in the construction of "Enso" were commercial cottons.
In Zen Buddhism, an ensō (円相 , "circle"?) is a circle that is hand-drawn in one or two uninhibited brushstrokes to express a moment when the mind is free to let the body create.
