Year Completed: 2004

Size: H60” × W57.5” / H152 cm × W146 cm

Material: old cotton, old silk, new cotton (including American hand-painted)

Statement: This ("Heavenly") series gave me an opportunity to strengthen three of my weaknesses: squares, small sizes, applique. I hoped to become more proficient and natural in the use of these. Squares were the theme for this quilt. The Shokintei (Pine-Koto Pavilion) of the Katsura Imperial Villa provided inspiration, along with the stepping stones seen throughout the villa.
