"What vision you have. Quilts with a story are always very intriguing. Your symbolism has great meaning and causes one to ponder ones own mental health as well as bringing into the forefront what depression, anxiety, etc may be like. Wonderful job."

She's Come Undone Art Quilt

I have been working away on this particular quilt for some time, and at last, it's finished. As you can see from the photo. This woman is coming "apart at the seams", pun intended. She has her hands across her chest to try to hold herself together but can't seem to do it. The lines running down the front of her are static - stop and start and uneven.

Wow, I spent the whole Memorial Day weekend quilting in the studio - like "quilting on steroids". I finally came up for air, and my family still recognizes me! I primarily focus on art quilt design that depicts social injustice, political dissent, spiritual awakening, healing quilts, and personal experiences (something I call personal mapping(tm). Believe me, there's a lot of good material out there to comment on. I don't have any trouble finding… Continue
