The Life Quilts

Life 10

Although the 20 Life Story Quilts have come to an end, and most are now in private collections around the world, there are 4 left that are available for display/exhibitions. Please contact me if you’d like to know more.

Each quilt includes a life model and a heavily stitched background with text of the “story” the quilt illustrates, and they cover a wide variety of subjects: feminism, work, motherhood, monopause, abuse, depression, bullying, ageing and injustice.

I am moving on now in a new and to me, exciting direction, for the time being….but the quilts and I may be back!

The words to each quilt open in another page – it’s a slow process to do this and I’ve only just started, but click the titles to read the sewn words and see images and close ups.
