You must be so embarrassed, 2020




You must be so embarrassed Digital image printed on crushed velour, thread, felt - hand sewn 59”x29”x.25” 2020 English Paper Piecing is one of the oldest forms of hand quilting. It is the base for the famed grandmother quilt made of hexagon flowers. It is also a huge source of community for women as they sit in groups to work on their EPP projects and trade fabric hexagons with one another. The process is also physically draining and time consuming, which is why it is often not a solitary practice. I found that stripping the community from such rigorous processes allowed me to push my body and attention span.
