Wheel of Life 2009

"Wheel of Life" is a sculptural quilt constructed on on a foamcore armature and wood "bicycle wheel" style stand.  It is actually 3 different quilts.  Two are circular quilts stretched onto foamcore circles.  the Third is a long thin piano keys style quilt that forms the outer tire.  The front and back faces are designed using raw edge applique and are beaded, embroidered and machine quilted..  This quilt was exhibited as part of the last 2009 Stretching Art and Tradition challenge displayed in Lancaster, PA at the Quilter's Heritage Celebration.

At the time I made this quilt, my life felt very much as if I were on a treadmill about to be run over at any moment.

Held in the artist's private collection
