Title: Flower Wreath (Detail)

Year Completed: 1995

Size: H74” × W55.5” / H188 cm × W141 cm

Material: old cotton (aizome), new cotton (Japan, America, France), old silk (obi), new cotton (American hand-painted)

Statement: This was my first design based entirely on horizontal stripes (among reversible quilts). It looks easy, but in fact is much more difficult than the more usual checkerboard constructions. The oval shapes suggest flowing motion.
