Doritos: Quilt in 3 Sections

Doritos | Sewn and glued brocade, polyester, wool and cotton fabric, 85”hx82”w, 2017-18

Two years ago, I bought a sewing machine and began teaching myself how to sew. I had accumulate tons of fabric, either by gifts from family and friends, or purchases, much of which I incorporated into the large paper and canvas works. I discovered and studied very carefully the quilts created by the African American women of Gee’s Bend, Alabama. My interest in quilt-making grew stronger as I realized how important they were to this project.
