quilted icons

inspired by liturgical altars, triptychs, Japanese temples and architectural symmetry. The triangular peaks at the top edges suggest the gable of a traditional House quilt block. The icons are supported by an interior armature that allows them to stand like a small quilted sculpture, as well as be displayed on a wall. Some have hinged side panels that can be opened and closed like a book; others have three-dimensional projections. The icons are machine pieced, machine and hand quilted, and are embellished with beads, ribbon and paper collage elements including antique postcards, old photos and stereopticon cards.
