Artist Statement:

Halloween, horror… and quilting? A 1/4 Inch Scream is a lighthearted look at the sometimes scary enthusiasm that quilters have for their craft. Works are free-pieced combining elements of both traditional and modern quilting. Hundreds of pieces of recycled selvages cut from quilting cottons are a main element of each work.
