When my grandmother was 5 she was a student in a children’s art class hosted by Emily Carr. I love Emily Carr’s work, so it seemed fitting that I recreate an Emily Carr painting.

In making this piece I explored copyright laws and work that is in the public domain.
I auditioned many fabrics for my cedar, choosing some, discarding others until satisfied.
I really enjoyed the whole process of making this quilt.

Original Pattern by Diana Bartelings based on Emily Carr’s Red Cedar with permission from the Vancouver Art Gallery. Emily Carr’s work is in the public domain. Credits on line – Marilyn Belford – Artists Revisited
