Illinois, unofficially known as the Prairie State, proudly lays claim to Frank Lloyd Wright and the Prairie School of Design. Wright’s unique style of architecture in his houses and stained glass was the inspiration for this design. Juxtaposed next to the stylized tallgrass plants, similar to Wright’s sumac windows, is a contemporary interpretation of tallgrass created with fabrics and threads. The background sampler stitches echo the verticality of the grasses with long lines and “v” shapes that mimic the intersection of the leaf and the stalk of the grass. Laid filling patterns are prominent in this piece, learning the intricacies of hiding travel threads is an important outcome in this class. Stitched on 18 count canvas with a variety of beads and threads, the stitcher will be in for a treat in creating this contemporary prairie scene.
