My Mother is a Fish

My Mother is a Fish24” 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.
