My next project explores how to depict in textile my evolution as an artist. Story line: beneath the surface of an art quilter is a traditional quilter.
I made this block about five years ago, twenty years after falling into a smitten state after discovering Amish quilts. This block will be part of my story. I can see in this Mexican Cross the startling color combinations of the Amish, strong red with berry and pink and orange and yellow.
As well, I love the frivolity as the black and red Celtic knots combine with the bubble gum polka dots.
