Wearables

Background

00/00/0000 - In our family, there is a tradition of creating wearable quilts such as the jacket and bathrobe presented here. As a girl, my bathrobe was always made from scraps of fabric my mother had left over after sewing my clothes. The jacket is one of two which I made, one for me and one for my daughter. The color pattern was the rainbow spectrum and each square comes from a piece of cloth from a meaningful piece of clothing. The jacket tells a story in many colors. The bathrobe was one of the last made in our family. Each side of the garment has matching patches of cloth. Quilts were made for utility, and these items which are worn, are made for that reason--usefulness..
