Rescue, Repair, Recycle, Reinvent -  Virginia Quilt Museum  •   Harrisonburg, Virginia
February 18, 2020 - July 11, 2020

Before she was a quilter, Ms. Emry collected unfinished quilt tops, mostly utilitarian ones, the scrappier, the better and the quirkier, the best. Repairing these tops – recycling some material from others – led to her designing new quilts, with some new, some reused material. This exhibit includes examples of her earlier work – several rescued and finished tops from the early 20th Century – and 11 of her wall quilts dating from 2006 to 2018. Most are scrappy. All are quilted by hand in an all-over spiral circle design, which adds a layer of interest and helps cover or ‘nail down’ the small pieces in the tops.
