"Part of a series of log cabin quilts representing places important to me, this is our ancestral home--a dirt floor stick shack--where my father was raised on the land where our ancestors were enslaved in the mountains of Alabama. Built by hand from handdyed cottons using just scissors, no rulers. Improvisational handquilting in pseudo-Kantha style is an attempt to mimic the tractor tracks on the farm. Crop circles and planting furrows. The quilt is not squared, an intentional artistic choice to let the work retain its personality much like the people and the hardscrabble land of this home." easton, Pennsylvania, United States 25" x 25"
