Elgin, IL USA
Width: 13" Length: 13"
Materials/Techniques: Hand-dyed and fused fabrics, machine quilted and hand embroidered.
Artist Statement: This piece is a collage of what I call "debris" or the aftermath of art making. It is created from cut away scraps of fabric too precious to discard but no longer large enough to handle. During the construction, I thought about how often we humans must experience loss and how often we manage to gather together and reunite. No matter the loss we always come together, to embrace, to hold dear, to repair and to rebuild.
Dedication: For my father-in-law, Emil, good friend, mentor and fun character.
This quilt has a Split Sleeve.
