Quilt no. 016: Floating Squares. 2015. Various quilting cottons. 34″ x 43″

This quilt was a return to a younger, more vibrant way of creating patchwork for me, as it was reminiscent of the way I created patchwork bags when I was teenager. It was made during a workshop with Sherri-Lynn Wood, where participants were a given a score to create a quilt with flexible patterning guidelines, rather than fixed patterning rules.  It reminded me that creative work is a place for play, joy, and self-expression and led me to improvisational quiltmaking.
