My Body Doesn't Define Me




I never did like sex role stereotypes. People should be able to do the things they love to do without being critized for doing something only men or only women do. And so I made this quilt.

The uterus and fallopian tubes are made from metallic copper lycra. Yes, I have exercise clothes made from that lycra. I quilted the quilt with holographic thread. A fellow quilter introduced me to holographic thread a few years ago, and I'm not sure I could sew without it.

I have a buffalo series I'm working on, abstract buffalo or uterus and fallopian tubes it's your call. I'm calling it taking my fertility by the horns. Maybe we should put a show together???
