These quilts were part of my graduate show in the 1990s and were my first true art quilts. Although I had been making quilts of my own designs and variations on traditional quilts since 1977, this exhibit marked a break-through as I abandoned almost all tradition and pushed out of the expected.
Please excuse the poor cropping on some images. These pre-date the era of digital cameras. Special thanks to Walt Pomeroy for scanning my old slides!
