On the Way to Berea

I dropped off this quilt at Carrye's pretty condo this evening and she'll be taking it to Berea tomorrow. It will be part of an exhibition at Eastern Kentucky University, Celebrate the Feminine: Quilting for the Cure, October 5 - 27. After that, the exhibition will be traveling to various locations and the quilts will come home in 2011.

My artist statement:

My quilt represents the paths of a woman’s life. Some are clear, defined, and progressive. Others are broken and transitional. Some paths are traveled in conjunction with another person, some are solitary. The splashes of pink represent the traditional feminine, but this is only a small part. In the end, all the paths and experiences fit together, no matter how diverse.

This quilt honors my mother, who died from breast cancer in 1985.
