The excitement of making a quilt the proper way, from scraps, is the balance between accuracy and ingenuity. The aim is to create beauty of expression with economy – even frugality – of means.
I was inspired by the patterns and creativity of Amish and Gee's Bend Quilt makers.
A lot of work goes into making these quilts – no two are ever the same. Their charm comes from their irregularity, emerging naturally from availability of fabric, the ingenuity of putting it together and the simplicity of the material, by dint of skill and effort making something beautiful, something collectible.
