As a textile designer and art quilter I am frequently working on multiple projects and processes. I move fluidly from the dye room to the sewing room to my sit-down quilting machine. Things catch my fancy and I pursue them for a while and sometimes abandon them for months or years. I put them on hold into a box I call the UFO (Unfinished Objects) box. This body of work emerged joyously from these realms out of necessity. I generally have 50 quilts waiting for new homes however I have another show where they are all on display. I did a beeline to the UFO box and brought these beauties forth. They were all pulled from some forgotten past and completed between March 20 and April 22, 2019. They are hand dyed using Procion fiber reactive dyes. The layers of texture are derived from an assortment of resists including regular flour, sugar from Potatoes, clamps and a second and third application of dyes. The University of Wisconsin Hospital has purchased over 130 of my quilts.
