Quilting about the body

Ann Merrell is the quilt artist I wanted to cite the other day when I shared my mammogram Journal Quilt.   Her “Celtic Cross” pieces are an exploration of a very simplified shape, which was, in part, a response to a diagnosis of breast cancer.  Though she didn’t say so on her website, the circular forms also, of course, are breast-shaped.

Ms. Merrell died in 1999.

Love to hear what you think!
