New Work – Schwerkraft (Gravity)

Catherine Redford and I co-founded the Naperville Modern Quilt Guild, and we had a little challenge!  We decided to make 36 inch square quilts doing a “modern” interpretation of the Log Cabin block.


Terrible photo, I am in a hurry…

The quilts that came in were really fun (Check them out at the link)!  My quilt, called Schwerkraft (German for Gravity), uses the large expanses of negative space, and many other tenets of the Modern Quilt Movement.  The red square was done using my heirloom smocking technique.


It’s going to IQF Chicago in June.  Isn’t that cool?
