This quilt is hanging near my bedroom door, so I see it several times a day.
I made it in 2002, and while I was sewing it I was actually thinking about how our houses become more delapidated every year, not about our bodies. But now that I am 8 years older, I am thinking more about my mind and my body wearing out. My eyesight is getting so terrible I need to get some magnifying glasses so I can thread needles again.
“Over the Hill”, 15″w x 12″h. I made this highly embellished piece in a workshop taught by Susan Shie. I’ve always enjoyed her quilts.
