Atomic Quilt
by Deborah McGuire

Techniques: Hand applique, machine pieced, foundation pieced, EPP, machine quilted.

Materials: Cotton fabric, cotton wadding, cotton piecing and quilting thread.

Artist's Statement: Inspired by the colours of the 1950s I took shapes and motifs recurrent in the work of Luciene Day's Calyx and others, and reworked them into linear patchwork blocks. From Pyrex, vintage radios, to the atomic clock, playing with classic patchwork shapes such as the clam to make mid century shapes. Minimal quilting.
