The Westcliffe Contemporary Quilters and Fiber Artists (WCQFA) guild, Westcliffe, Colorado, issued a challenge to its members: To create a 12” x 12” art quilt illustrating our own interpretation of a topic utilizing many aspects of quilting, edging and surface design. The resulting quilts were shown at several galleries and quilt shows.
Topic Word: Community.
To me, community is people pulling together for a common good regardless of race, color, creed or class. The use of multiple hands piled on each other in a unity clasp embodied my vision of community.
Construction: Whole cloth method. Pigments on dark cotton fabric.
