Typical of Crow’s early work, this study is based upon a carefully planned geometric structure. The artist says, “I was always good at mathematics and I love engineering structures.” Note the use of commercially printed fabrics and hand stitching. Later the artist switched to using her own hand-dyed fabrics exclusively to create her pieces and now prefers machine quilting.
