The Clothesline Quilt by Laura Jackson

Cotton fabric, cotton thread, cotton batting, sheer fusible, double stick fusible; machine pieced, machine quilted, iron on qpplique, freezer paper pattern.

Artist’s Statement

The Clothesline Quilt was inspired by an alluring image of a home surrounded by red and green lettuce fields. The concepts of “home” and “quilt” spark an inkling of beauty, comfort and usefulness all intersecting in the image of a quilt swaying in the breeze. This piece expresses the joy and security of a home life where hard work in the soil and happy work with a needle and thread meet.
