The woven quilts were a concept I explored through the 1990s until 2001. I didn’t stop for a reason; I just haven’t gotten back to it yet.
TNARQ was created for the NOTRAD travelling show by the same name. At the time, there was a lot of drama around what was a quilt and what was not a quilt, thus the name stands for This is Not a Real Quilt. It was displayed in Lyon, France at the Quilt Expo. The quilt is made of six layers which allows it to open and close. It is the second in a series of woven quilts.
Woven 3: Purple is the third in a series of woven quilts. Embellished with hand dyed rickrack, and quilted with Oliver Twist variegated thread. Shown at the Contemporary Quilt and Fiber Arts show in Mountain View. You can find more on this quilt at its own page.
Fireball is the fourth in a series of woven quilts. Created in response to the events of September 11, 2001. Included in the book, America From the Heart. This quilt was part of a display in the American Embassy in Costa Rica. Take a look at other information.
