Cut, Stitch, Sew (Transfusion #8)


60” x 96″


To me, all “quilts” have a narrative. “Cut, Stitch, Sew“, is #8 in my “Transfusion” series. It relates to the sewing skills “transfused” into me by my mother. Like her, I too made clothing, but in the mid 1970’s when quilts were hung on walls I started to think about quilts in a new way. A Graduate Course in Advanced Pattern Making, which I completed in the early 1970’s produced the shapes that I decided to use in this piece.
