Home Work

Here’s what we’ve been doing while staying at home. Images here are submitted by Maine Fiberarts’ staff and our readers. What have you been doing? Email us (carol@mainefiberarts.org) a photo or two with a tiny caption and we will post it here with everyone’s (stay at) home work.

Quilting runs in my DNA. In fact, my modest collection of vintage quilts includes the work of my maternal great-grandmother and my paternal grandmother, as well as my favorite great aunt. My approaching retirement has given me the motivation to pursue this long-admired art form. The need to stay at home during the pandemic gave me time for additional focused practice. Although my handiwork will never match that of my foremothers, I hope my improvisational quilts bring a measure of pleasure, if not comfort, to the people whose lives they touch.
