"This piece was created for an exhibit at the Tennessee Aquarium. I combined my appreciation for the tradition and history of quilting, along with my love for clean, simple design to create this piece. My inspiration comes from the many curves or ""meanders"" of the Tennessee River. I chose the Drunkard's Path block to create the exaggerated meandering shape. Three shapes were used to represent the formation of the Tennessee River from the Holston and French Broad Rivers. The Rivers are surrounded with a natural, textured fabric and dense quilting to create a contrast between the water and earth." Chattanooga, Tennessee, United States 39" x 42"
