Artist Statement
For several years I lived in Japan and collected fabrics, old and new, to use in my quilts.  Each of these beautiful textiles has traveled many miles
and lived several lives to get to this point.
As time has passed, my collection has diminished and I find myself using smaller and smaller pieces -- partly because it is hard to use the last bit of a textile never to be seen again.  And partly because it is my wish to share the fragments of what remain.
Kirehashi is Japanese for "Fragment".
