I want to start off by acknowledging that I am very aware that I have quite the advantage with this working at home situation. Having spent years alone in my studio, I very simply see this time as one more opportunity to hunker down with my current project: 14 flags to illustrate my in-process writing: A PATCHWORK LIFE.

My interest in flags came from two sources: first a commission for a DC hotel and second my husband, Steve’s desire to produce his own prayer flags.

D.C. Denim Flag

Pittsburgh-based fiber artist, Louise Silk, creates art that combines aesthetics and functionality with meaning and memories. From the influence of a 1972 MS Magazine article to the current SILKDENIM label, her quilt experiences culminate in a display of her particular capacity to use her patchwork skills to piece together just about anything into an aesthetic meaningful whole.
