Width: 15" Length: 15"
Materials/Techniques: All shot cottons from the Peppered Cottons collection by Studio E Fabrics. Threads are #16 and #12 Perle cotton by Presencia Thread. The batting is wool by Pellon. While the tiny blocks were sewn over tracing paper initially, after that step (paper was torn away) all other sewing was by hand. Handwork gives me the time to reflect and appreciate the process--call it meditation with a needle.
Artist Statement: This little crazy quilt is to honor my friend and writing collaborator Susan McKelvey. Together she and I wrote the book The Signature Quilt and I learned a great deal from Susan. When my husband and I moved to North Carolina, we bought our house from the McKelveys as well. Bless you Susan.
Dedication: In honor of Susan McKelvey.
This quilt has Fast Finish Triangles.
