Trading fabrics for worn wooden planks, split doors, cracked cabinets, and broken dressers, Laura Petrovich-Cheney still considers her work to be quilts. Her wooden scrap materials were collected after surviving a hurricane. Combining quilt making with woodworking, her sculptures are quite different from traditional quilts. Yet, the result is the same— an object of beauty and comfort, a pieced-together whole from scraps that tells a story of hope and resilience.
Textile Talks features weekly presentations and panel discussions from the International Quilt Museum, Quilt Alliance, San Jose Museum of Quilts & Textiles, Studio Art Quilt Associates, and Surface Design Association. The programs are held online at 2 p.m. Eastern (11 a.m. Pacific) each Wednesday.
