FLIGHT

Guest Curator - Sally Westcott

I have chosen to explore the many ways flight can be represented. It is not just birds!  Butterflies, beetles, hearts and angels.  Even violins!  Flight is liberating and the quilts I have selected express that freedom.

Three hearts with wings

I use overlooked, and reclaimed textiles to refashion a cognitive narrative. I am searching for my own iconography using needle, thread, text and motif.
