WALL Works: FRIENDSHIP QUILT

34” x 46.5” x 8.5”

Friendship quilts were most often created when someone was leaving the community. Each acquaintance/friend embroidered a square with her signature. The squares in this piece are from a 19th Century piecework and is a commentary about women’s friendships. Gloves are outstretched and attached as though reaching out to make contact. Perhaps saying good-bye, perhaps welcoming to a new neighborhood
