Title: Welcoming Fate

Year Completed: 2000

Size: H81.5” × W62” / H207 cm × W158 cm

Material: old cotton (aizome) new hand-dyed cotton (America, Indonesia)

Statement: The title suggests how over a period of many years I have received fabric of different types, sizes, vintages, and colors, from different people in different countries. These accumulate until suddenly I realize I have everything I need for a particular design. The back ground itself has a design made from four kinds of aizome fabric. Superimposed is a simple quiet rectangular design which draws the viewer into the quilt.
