Artist’s Statement:
This is a replication of an 1870s quilt made by Salinda Rupp found in Liz Lois’ book Nearly Insane. It was a challenge (I’m sure) to take an old picture and put it into pieces that this new world of quilters could follow. I found that at times, simply put, I hated the process. But the rest of the time I loved it. After my heart attack I felt that I had to finish it.
