River of Life, 2009, in process
The theme for this month’s Art Chix was “Women’s Work.” I chose to show a lap quilt that I hadn’t quite completed to demonstrate that “a woman’s work is never done.”
African fish swim across the main fabric, with coordinating solids on either side. Because I chose to hand-stitch around each fish, I do not see an end in sight anytime soon. There is additional wavy hand stitching in the wide fabrics on either end.
