While getting ready for Christmas morning brunch 2017, I decided to take out a favorite glass candelabra that I’ve used in the past to add a little “glam” to the table. Revisiting favorites from the past starting me thinking about the quilt that is hanging over the dining room seating area.
Titled “Staying in Line” (48H x 42W) it has been shown several times including my 20 year retrospective 1991-2011 at the University of Connecticut; and in 2013 in the 44th Annual Nor’Easter, at The New Britain Museum of American Art. Presently I am revisiting this line in my art and how it creates eye movement across the surface of the quilt. My present “Transfusion” series takes this line to a new level with a variety of red patterned printed fabrics. Shown here on my design wall “Transfusion #4” is now ready for me to start the hand quilting process. So if we get that snow that is being predicted for Christmas Day in CT – I am all set, with family, friends, food, and something to work on. So let it SNOW and have a Merry Christmas – Love – Peace – and Joy to all! (If we loose power – remember I have lots of candles to light, and I don’t need electricity to do my hand stitching.)
Your table looks beautiful…and I love your new work! Merry Christmas to you and yours Catherine!
