I have returned to my quilting projects, put on hold for the last two months while I rushed through the fine art embroidery module for my degree.
I love quilts. Quilts have all the layers that I tried to show with my black dress embroidery. Quilts automatically have the metaphors that I want to refer to - protection, woman's hand as work and caress, meditation, story telling, political statements. I love the size of a bed quilt, ample as a modernist painting but much deeper, softer.
