Window Panes Detail
Windowpanes: 22 x 40
This is the first
quilt in my series exploring windows. This wall of abstracted windows gives
hints of what might be going on inside the panes of glass. Some of the
windows glare, bright with activity, while others are dark or restful,
perhaps reflecting the ups and downs in our daily lives.
The Matrix Details
Matrix: 40 x 29.5
According to Webster's
dictionary, matrix means "womb---that within which something originates or
takes form" and the illusion of drawing you into to that spot of origination
is what this quilt is about. The "windows" act as the womb and are the spot
of origination. The design is simple but creates an effective illusion. The
hand dyed and discharged fabrics are pieced. The free motion quilting
creates lines of reflections in the windows, and the diminishing squares
continue another layer of the design in the rest of the quilt. Couched
yarns are added for embellishment.
WINDOWS.COM: 38 x 26
In the high tech
world of 2002, you cannot mention the word "windows" without also thinking
of the computer operating system. Everything is a ".com" these days.
So, this quilt's title is really a play on the word. The wall of pieced
"windows" was created by using hand dyed and discharged fabrics, and
embellished by free motion quilting throughout.
