Lillian's Expectations
Art Quilt
41" x 30"
2015

She came of age in 1917, moved from a northern farm to a southern city, and married a bigger-than-life man. What expectations she had to balance! She carried society's expectations-- to adapt, to accept,to fill an assigned role; the ones she had for her own life; and the ones she had for her offspring. Family photos and stories provide only clues about the weight of this balancing act, and the costs of the process.

This art quilt has been accepted into Balancing Act, an internationally juried exhibit sponsored by SAQA. It will travel as part of the exhibit from 2015-2017.
