Quilts As Women's Art: A Quilt Poetics was published in 1990 and has been quoted from often in publications. As you can see mine is well loved. She was living in Switzerland when she died. I tried to interview her for Quilters' S.O.S. -Save Our Stories and regret that we could never seem to make it happen. The quilt world has lost not only a great artist and poet, but someone who fought for the recognition of quilts as women's art beginning in the 1970s.
wrote, "I stepped out of the 'art scene' when I began doing my quilts.
I have stayed with quiltmaking because it helped me to find wholeness
and be open to enjoy, advise, and validate the creativity of other
women. I believe we are all equally creative, and my happiest moment
regarding art was when one of my students said about my course, 'It
helped me realize that I am more creative than I thought before.' This
is my [current] objective, and if it does not make me an 'artist,'
that's OK with me."
