Shared Secrets, 2009 16" x 19"

Shared Secrets is showing at:
2009 National Small Art Quilt Work Exhibition
July 23 - September 6, 2009
Main Street Gallery, Groton, New York

In this quilt, I have combined different textile techeniques to achieve a multilayered effect. I have woven, braided, knitted, and crocheted strings, creating a variety of cords. I meshed the assembly of strings and cords with fabrics that I sew in my studio. I have created the abstract using unique techniques that include crocheting and stitching with stainless steel wire; quilting with recycled metal that I hand stitch with stainless steel wire; and embellishing with wire strung seeds from the neighborhood gardens.
