Jake's Quilt

85" x 85" ©2008

A bed quilt for my nephew Jake's graduation, machine pieced from new and recycled fabrics, hand appliquéd, and quilted by hand with DMC perl cotton. What a pleasure to work without a pattern, building outward from the three central medallions to create shapes full of energy and vitality. As I sewed, the forms came to suggest flowers and a butterfly, so I used my hand-quilting to enhance the sense of liveliness and growth.
