Aftermath by Jacquie Gering, 2013

Aftermath was made in response to the bombing at the Boston Marathon and was inspired by the last image I saw when I turned off the coverage on TV. In every act of violence there is aftermath, both positive and negative. I was overwhelmed by the acts of selflessness to help strangers on that day. This quilt reminds me to be a part of those who repair the impact of violence. The blood is applied with raw edge applique using a tiny zigzag stitch and quilted with dense linear quilting.
