Spring Rittenhouse 2024
The touch and feel of the material, the endless possibilities when I experiment with the dyes and the fabrics ; it always amazes me. Each project takes many hours and most of these are all done by hand. The sewing machine is just a small part of the work.I use the fabric as paint, I paint with fabrics. Working with fabrics is time consuming and therapeutic, the thinking, the planning, the busy hands and the joy of work itself.
My last series of quilts came about after last year's events. Every single finished piece is a part of history.A piece in time for recording and remembering.
