"I'll Show You Crazy", 2020
Handmade quilt utilizing vintage and found fabrics.
On the front are five cross symbols, one in each corner with a larger cross in the center atop a stark black background. Each cross is made up of an array of pastel fabrics quilted together. Various sizes of holes can be found throughout the quilt in no clear pattern or arrangement. On the back, the quilt utilizes the same fabrics, but in completely different proportions. In the center, there is a black square with checkered rectangles which is surrounded by larger areas of the pastel fabrics in varying sizes of rectangles and squares. A neon green trim encompasses the entire perimiter, providing a strong contrast to the dark field.
