This is Where I Stopped to Rest

“This is Where I Stopped to Rest” (2016) 57″x57″x7″, cotton, poly/blends, foam.

While this new quilt obviously contains no photography, it is partly inspired by a Kodachrome slide my mother shot while on a cross country vacation decades ago. The title is taken from her handwriting on its cardboard frame. The repetitive form is derived from a past experimental project and my endless love of simple daily views of forestry near my home-studio.

The trees are talking and your extended absence is of prime concern. When are you returning to the forest?

BIT by BIT is happy to announce that Marie’s quilted wall-hanging “Ballot Box” has received preliminary acceptance into Quilt National ’17, which will open in May 2017, hang until September 2017, after which selected quilts will go on to show in various national and international venues through the year 2019. Check back here or the Dairy Barn website for more information as it becomes available.

Also of note is the accompanying hardbound printed catalog which beautifully and accurately reproduces each accepted quilt (not available for purchase until 2017).
