Life is Like a Box of Chocolates
53" x 53"   $2500  (US shipping $17)

This quilt was included in the Dairy Barn Art Center's "OH+5" show in 2016.


A modern interpretation of a sampler quilt, this art quilt, "Life is Like a Box of Chocolates," was pieced as a traditional sampler quilt with nine blocks. It was quilted with a tight, angular free-motion quilting and then it was cut apart into 81 5”x5” squares. Much like a Suduko puzzle, each of the nine original blocks are distributed evenly so each section has a part of each block. The squares were machine appliquéd to an over-dyed navy blue background with the edges left raw and the batting exposed. Some of the original quilt blocks were Bear’s Paw, Jacob’s Ladder, Log Cabin, and Path Through the Woods.

Comes with a hanging sleeve and rod, ready to hang on two nails.
