Healing Art: Quilts

Thursday, March 10th, 2011

Capital Health in Hopewell will have work by many area artists, and we are all looking forward to seeing our projects installed later this year.  In addition to three interior sculptures, my commission includes the creation of two quilts for wall mounted presentation in the Oncology area.

To gather material for the project I requested donations of fabric from the staff, who did not disappoint. Numerous, diverse fabrics came in and Rona Remstein was kind enough to collect them for me. She also made a trek out to Pennington Quilt Works with a staff nurse, and together we gathered a bunch of batiks with floral and arboreal themes.

I am currently piecing the two “Tumbling Block” quilt tops.
