|Artist Statement:||If I could make time into a geometric garden, it would have 3D perspective and the center would be a garden. All the paths would converge in the garden but the outer edges of the paths would form concentric squares. That’s what I envision…
I made this piece from many 2″ strips that I sewed to each other and then slashed at 90 degree angles. It was as much an exercise in math as it was in quilting straight lines — a challenge on both counts. Combining the center with Y-seams proved to be the hardest part of this challenge.
