|Artist Statement:||This quilted, fabric art wall hanging shows how I see Jerusalem.
This landscape is a medley of nature mixed with old and new. It’s like no other place in the world. The old walls overlooking the Judean Hills are spectacular. The modernity of the new bridge merged with the antiquity of the walls was my inspiration for this piece.
I created this quilt art using raw-edge applique and many different cotton fabrics as well as “snippets” of fabrics and yarns. I thread painted using all different threads to embellish the piece and finally I machine quilted the layers into a magical quilt that hangs on the wall.
This quilt toured at the Ailsa Craig Quilt Festival in Canada in 2013 and was exhibited at the Chase Family Gallery in Greater Hartford, CT in 2014.
