The Black Box

When an airplane or ship has been in a catastrophe, authorities search for the black box to find out what happened. In this quilt, the black box is a metaphor for human beings. And no, it’s not entirely black. Often, we are quick to decide what we think about each other; a closer look often reveals more complexity and differences.

Commercial fabric; raw-edge collaged, machine quilted, hand embroidered; 16 x 16 x 16 inches (41 x 41 x 41 cm) Bettina Andersen Copenhagen, Denmark

Twilight and Stripes

My art quilts are created for the pleasure of experimenting with lines, colors and forms with striped fabrics. I like to search original designs, playing and contrasting lines and curves. In the past, striped fabrics had a negative feeling, and this aspect remains in quilting. This was another reason for me (the first one is that I like stripes) to use them as a challenge.

Cotton, striped fabrics; machine pieced, machine quilted, appliquĂŠd and embroidered; 51 x 56 inches (130 x 142 cm) Gabrielle Paquin OrlĂŠans, France

Between Earth and Sky

This work explores the dual nature of the worlds we live between: earth and sky. We belong to the solid ground, which contains the secret forms of seeds. We belong to the sky, the place of breath and cosmic forms, which generate wind, water and light. The symbolism of this contrasting yet symbiotic union is expressed in this quilt’s two opposing colors: yellow and blue.

Silk, dyes, embroidery thread; hand dyed with resists, silkscreen printed, discharge dyed, hand pieced, embroidered, hand quilted; 32 x 54 inches (81 x 137 cm) Nancy Whittington Chapel Hill, North Carolina, USA

Journeys 4: Night Flight

I made this quilt to deal with my anxiety about going on a long trip. I thought longingly about the long flight home, when the plane comes in low over Durban Harbor a few minutes before landing. I would be able to see the lights of ships, buildings and streets shimmering on the water. The excitement of that view is almost unbearable. I am nearly home.

Commercial and hand-dyed cotton, silk, taffeta, brocade, velvet; machine and hand pieced and appliquĂŠd, machine quilted; 31 x 38 inches (78 x 96 cm) Rosalie Dace Durban, South Africa
