A Dream Foreclosed

Chicago Foreclosure Quilt detail

For a quilter’s view of the mortgage foreclosure crisis:

It was important to me to present the whole story in a way that would captivate people’s attention and make a memorable statement. Making quilts seemed an ironic solution. Quilts act as a functional memory, an historical record of difficult times. It is during times of hardship that people have traditionally made quilts, often resorting to scraps of cloth when so poor they could not afford to waste a single thread of fabric. Kathryn Clark

    I remember making a quilted bedspread when funds were very limited. It brought great joy to have the spread.
