Title: My Arabic World

Year Completed: 2015

Size: H82.5” × W62” / H210 cm × W158 cm

Material: Antique cotton (including aizome), new cotton (including Indonesian batik)

Statement: I had been thinking about using Arabic patterns in a reversible Log Cabin quilt for almost thirty years. The basic design possibilities for such quilts use only vertical and horizontal lines and diagonals at a 45 degree angle. Any other line, curve, or shape can only be approximated. For that reason I found it almost impossible to include the kinds of intricacies and elements.
