Fence Quilt

Working from the negative space that was cut-out to make the work 8 sheets of Stonehenge cut like a chain-link fence,  I will re-build the cut-out fragments  as a paper quilt. No longer limited to the size of the paper, these pieces will be machine sewn together to build a new fence, in a similar fashion to a traditional quilt. This “paper quilt fence” will be pieced together with no constraints on height or length. The black thread that will join the oblong shapes will create new links to replace the paper ones that once held these pieces together. The work will juxtapose the traditional “women’s work” of quilt-making and the industrial processes evoked by fences and construction.

Here is some early piecing…
