Juried into Threadworks: Flashback exhibit in 2016, this quilt won “Best Interpretation of Theme” award and went on tour in Ontario for 3 years. Inspired by a photograph my mother took of herself in 1952 using a Kodak Brownie camera. With the camera resting on a stack of books in front of her dresser mirror, one finger holding the aperture open, she remained perfectly still for 15 seconds.
