BubbeWisdom: Faith. Belief. Practice Exhibit

At this stage of my life, everything fabric, patch, thread, takes on multiple meaning. It’s the same for breath, thought, action and so it is for the three categories of work on display: Bed Quilts made from gleaned scraps of my fabric collection; Kabbalah theme quilts from tee-shirt remnants; work from personal materials of memory.
