24” x 24” The title of this piece comes from the William Faulkner novel, As I Lay Dying. A 14th Century Mongolian platter inspired the work. It is a wholecloth quilt, meaning the top layer is a single piece of fabric. The design comes entirely from dark blue thread on white fabric. My Mother is a Fish has been exhibited widely and was published in an article in the October-November issue of Quilting Arts Magazine.
