Quilt 656 for The 70273 Project
Art Quilts, 2018
Quilts 655 and 656, named by The 70273 Project, go together because they were made concurrently yet came out a very different pieces. Quilt 656 was a pure improvisational exercise, with each larger pair of Xs pieced. This one represents The 70273 Project as a whole to me, with the strand of red "thread" that remembers these souls encircling the commemorations. There are a total of 117 here. If you are unfamiliar with this international art project, see Jeanne-Hewell-Chambers' site here for The 70273 Project.
