Wool [ ] Quilt, January 2011

90" x 84", machine pieced, hand quilted.


Made from from re-purposed plaid wool shirts, suits, skirts and pants, with a khaki, 100% linen back and binding. The pattern is improvised and inspired by the symbol of brackets [ ].


The wool is so richly luminous that the the bright oranges, reds, and pinks can't be photographed without blowing my camera's saturation meter.


It took 65 hours and 20 years of experience to complete.
