I am curating an exhibition this Sept at the IQSC in Nebraska showcasing some of my recent collaborative signature quilts juxtaposed with a selection from the Nebraska collection. This is part of on going project is an investigation of stitched signature cloths. It stems from research in 2010 investigating signature quilts in the collection of International Quilt Study Center in Nebraska.
Investigating and documenting these early cloths will not only inform the new collaborations but help to shed light on this unique form of social history. All the journeys I have relished, amassing a wonderful store of images and sketchbook ideas related to the stitched cloths and stories associated with their making.
