This project began with my Mom saying "I want to show you something." She took me to her room and pulled out a box from under the bed. There was a stack of floral embroideries. She explained that she had done these as a wedding gift for my brother and his wife, intending to make a quilt, but she never got to finishing it. I suggested, instead of letting them languish under the bed, we might work together to complete what she set out to do. The embroideries then languished in my studio. I would see them, and think that I really needed to make time to layout a design with my Mother supervising the vision. Then I would rush off to my next job. Many jobs and several years zipped by. Then came the pandemic. My work came to a full stop. A few months after getting through the initial panic, I was attempting to clean up my studio. There were Mom's embroideries. My sister in law loves Victorian furnishings. After asking permission from my Mother I set about turning her artwork into a Victorian crazy quilt. In order to keep the focus on the embroieries- and actually complete the project- I kept the pieces larger. I also resisted my innate tendency to obsessively embroidery and bead over everything. Twenty some years after Mom began, it is finished!
