Star of Fortitude (A Self Portrait from 1991)
For this work, I modified a traditional Pineapple Log Cabin quilt pattern to make my own design: A shooting star somewhere in the universe is captured just for a moment in time and sliced in half to reveal its pulsating heart-core center inside the protective jagged edging. The fabrics: Japanese hand-stencil-dyed blue and white yukata cottons and hand-dyed USA solid cottons, hand-woven Thai silks (center), and a commercially produced background print. Machine –pieced, hand-quilted, and embellished with glass beads. Batting inner liner.
Size: 64” Ht x 63.5” W.
