Square Roots

This wall hanging is 21 inches square. It is made from vintage blocks originally cut and collected by my grandmother. The binding is from a piece of vintage yardage collected by my great aunt. I stuck with the simple relatively modern design to highlight these unique fabrics. The square in a square pattern reminds me of looking into the infinity mirror seeing the past and future reflected together. The traditional feather quilting is a nod to the skill of those quilters under whose quilt frame I used to play.


I quilt near St Louis Missouri.
