Details of "Life's Journey"


Childhood

My mother saved many of my baby clothes. Perhaps unwisely, I decided to cut them up to use in this quilt. 

It was a poignant experience to deconstruct these garments--a meticulously sewn pink romper that had been made by an elderly relative, a pinafore hastily stitched by my mother, my well-loved apron with pockets for holding crayons. 


Mountains of Pubescence


As much as possible, I used my own garments as the raw materials for 'Life's Journey'.

The pink corduroy is from a circle skirt I made in junior high, the turquoise wool  from a garment I wore in high school.

The white cotton bra, however, was bought at great price on eBay. It is truly vintage!
