Liberty I & II
2010
17 Lx 7.5W each

These two quilts were cut from a larger quilt I did a few years earlier that just wasn't working as a whole. I cut my favorite parts out and turned them into 2 small quilts.

I worked on the original quilt in January 2002 while still reeling a little bit from 9/11. I was working with recycled and scrap fabrics stitched down with raw edges. Then I went through my fabrics looking for images of inspiration and treated it like a collage.

My feeling when I look at the quilts is the feeling of an under water city that is quiet and somewhat lost. Then there are the powerful images of the Statue of Liberty and the heart soaring with hope and belief in better things to come.

Because the quilts are quite small, I attached a small wire hanger to make hanging very simple.
