War Horse (Quilt)

Sometimes I refer to this art quilt as the 'retirement quilt.' I created this quilt during my last year of secondary art in a public school. Every image and piece of fabric was pulled from the trove of hand dyed, painted and printed fabrics that I had accumulated over 25 years. I chose the war horse theme in part because I like medieval art and because I felt I had successfully overcome many struggles in my years of teaching. For more see my blog. (Private Collection)
