Signature Cloths

Output Type:Exhibition
Venue:International Quilt Study Center, University of Lincoln, Nebraska USA
Number of Works:7

This research project was an investigation into the history and contemporary relevance of signature quilts (a quilt or cloth where the surface pattern is made up primarily of sewn signatures). It began during a Fellowship to the International Quilt Study Center at the University of Nebraska in 2010 where I first encountered a number of these exquisite textiles. The cloths, in all shapes and sizes commemorate the lives of ordinary individuals and constitute an early form of social networking, depicting communities, familial groupings and various affiliations
