Plant-dyed silk, silk floss, wool yarn, wool batting, silk chiffon backing. Dyed, layer, hand pieced, embroidered and quilted.
Artist’s Statement: Small marks/large emptiness. Working slowly and in solitude with a hoop, it feels as if I have the land in my lap.

From your friends...

A monumental quilt and design that will stand through the ages. Contemporary art represented by hand dyed cloth and hand laid stitches is representative of a pinnacle in a life devoted to stitch and original design.

Congratulations Judy, from all of your friends representing SAQA Central Canada regions and  all Canadians who watch your journey, drink in the beauty of the art that evolves in your hands and who each celebrate together your devotion to this beautiful work.

Enjoy your weekend in Athens ,Ohio, and do know how much your work inspires and leads others to explore, make their mark on the world with the labor of their hands and drink in the beauty of the landscape that lies before them as they follow down your path.
