KALEIDOSCOPIC XLI: The Prague Spanish Synagogue Ceiling
2017, Bronx, NY
As soon as I looked up at the Prague Spanish Synagogue Ceiling in 2014, I knew I’d found a quilt idea. I am a Patternista, hardwired to see pattern everywhere and here was a glut of architectural designs bumping into each other. Taking two years, this quilt contains over 80 fabrics designed by me in the past twenty years for Benartex. There are at least a thousand camouflaged seams. I think I could have worked on this one quilt for the rest of my career, editing, auditioning and refining as the nuances and possibilities of the concept evolved.
