Past Present: Double Dutch

Past Present: Double Dutch

35.5 x 58 in.

Materials: Cyanotype chemicals overall on vintage Double Wedding Ring hand-pieced quilt top consisting of cotton fabrics, embroidery thread, Dual Duty thread to attach polyester/cotton binding, bamboo/cotton batting.

Techniques: Cyanotype photograms of rope and glasses, hand embroidery and hand quilting in embroidery thread, binding hand stitched to back.

Statement: Expressing the joy of playing double Dutch with two jump ropes and one or more jumpers, with light flashing off the white ropes. The traditional Double Wedding Ring pattern intertwines like the ropes in double Dutch seem to do as they are turned. My Past Present series incorporates traditional vintage quilt blocks and tops assembled by anonymous makers, creating contemporary statements.
