This piece was created in response to Windham Textile Museum's invitation to make a contemporary art quilt inspired by one of the antique quilts in their collection. The antique that fell to me was a tone on tone beige calico bed-quilt. The block was a flying geese variation. From my viewpoint all the geese were pointing into each other....never to take flight.

I enjoy being challenged to do something with thread that I've never (or very, very rarely have) done before. Stepping out AND being a little irreverent to tradition....fun! Thanks, Martha!
