My quiltmaking is sandwiched, moved about, displaced between other activities and the crosscurrents of people's movements inside the place I live.
I work out of silence, because silence makes up for my actual lack of working space. Silence substitutes for actual space, for psychological distance, for a sense of privacy and intactness. In this sense silence is absolutely necessary.
My focus on silence is to be understood as an intrinsic part of the body's search for meaning amongst the noisy assaults of everyday life.... What quilts have brought to the viewing of art generally is this intervening layer of silence, of collected thought and concerted attention.
