Serendipity took me to San Francisco in 1971 where no one I knew had a real job, but everyone had Stewart Brand’s “Whole Earth Catalog”. I was shown how to make a quilt, and within two months I was selling patchwork pillows in Union Square.
The quilts of the 70s, 80s, 90s reflect both the availability of fabric and the size of my apartment. Although I preferred making my personal take on traditional patterns, I would occasionally break out of the mold and make quilts like the “Red and Black Crazy” and hangings like “Breakthrough”.
Please enjoy this small representation of 40 years of cutting apart perfectly good fabric and reassembling the pieces.
