A day of hand quilting the Wolfe Memorial Quilt in my studio. A collaboration between me, Ruth Anne and her mother Dolores Wolfe.
The Delores Wolfe memorial quilt is ready to be hand-quilted. Her daughter will be quilting with me as part of her bereavement process.
I like a messy work room when I’m working. It is comforting to see the remains lying where they fall. How about you?
Lots of hand piecing going on, because I completely ignored my rule of thumb to avoid insets… but it’s worth it. The love is in the details.
Sometimes the nitty gritty happens on hands and knees. Working on the floor is always a big part of my process.
Dolores Wolfe was a craftswoman and farmer. She raised sheep, spun wool into yarn, wove yarn into cloth.
I’ve been asked to create a memorial quilt from the clothing of Dolores Wolfe. Whenever there is a new start a few simple shapes bubble to the surface.
