This quilt was inspired by 'eunoto', an African initiation ceremony where one transitions from youth to adulthood by way of sacred rituals. And it is about the transformation of a dark windowless loft into a wonderful studio in which this quilt was made and its maker felt herself begin to transform from a caterpillar munching on the leaves of other people's instruction and influence into a butterfly artist, taking off for the first time under her own wings. More on the blog.
