When I retired I didn’t plan to create quilts with scientific imagery, it just happened. I guess I was drawn to what I know and my past experiences.
The “ CELL-ebration” quilt shown below began as a 3-fot by 5-foot long woodcut that I carved over an eight-week period and printed on muslin fabric with a city steamroller at a public art event. My drawing for the woodcut was based upon the studies of a 19th century Belgian zoologist Édouard Van Beneden. The print was assembled into a conventional quilt sandwich with batting and backing fabric and was machine quilted.
