I began this quilt a couple months ago. Every woman in my family has made a quilt at one time or another, and it’s about that time for me to do the same. The quilt explores my family tree, life experiences as well as familial cycles of trauma. Throughout the making of this quilt (which is still in progress by the way) I have been using heirloom fabrics, naturally dyeing patches for color, embroidering translucent lace patches, as well as scanning photos of important objects and papers that are relative of these experiences and printing them onto fabric. I am not ready to show the whole piece, but here are some glances.
I am interested in listening to stories of resilience. I want to here others speak their mind. Share what you think. It’s important.
