    Love your work. Thanks to controversy, I found you. Perhaps the negativity will bring more focus to your thoughtful, well-executed works of art. Not your Grandma’s quilting….but I am a Grandma and a quilter and I for one love what you are doing. Thanks

    This is good stuff. Just because we work in fabric doesn’t mean we shouldn’t attack ‘adult’ subject matter. There are quilt shows and then there are quilt shows. And btw, I’m 54 years old and sick and tired of the notion that female genitals are somehow shocking or disgusting. Men? Their ‘bits’ are on display in every art gallery on earth, turned into architecture, enshrined as a major form. Just because ours don’t dangle out the front doesn’t mean they’re gross.


  3. Amelia Leigh says:

    I’m sitting in the UK following the controversy surrounding your quilt. I find it amazing that there are still people in the world finding the female/male body “disgusting”. I wish more quilt/textile artists were making political art like yours. Well done to you and those who are prepared to face the critics by presenting such work.

    I just wanted to commt that I love your work! I live in San Diego, and am sad to see I missed your recent show… I do not see a mailing list option on your site, but was hoping there was a way to keep in the loop for future shows?

    Keep up the amazing work!

    Just saw your quilt Beyond the Concrete at the Quilt National Show in Athens, Ohio and loved it! So I looked you up and am thrilled by all of your work. I love political, statement quilts and really appreciate your attitude and awesome artistic ability. Will try to catch more of your work when I can.
