"Quilt Conversations", 64"x64", 1990-1996, $6,000


A Quilt is a conversation in so many ways. It is a conversation about the materials and fabrics. Different fabrics bring up different feelings and thoughts; then there is the idea behind the imagery which has to do with expressing and sharing experiences. I was thinking about how the act of quilting is like a conversation between lots of people, bringing people together from all over the world; people who might not have otherwise met; forming groups and becoming friends; creating opportunities...........

This quilt shows a conversation around a quilt. Perhaps this is another way of healing relationships, talking, feeding one another, having fun, and growing!!!

Machine appliqué, fabric, thread, buttons, beads, braids, acrylic paint, fabric paint, polymer clay.
