KALEIDOSCOPIC XXXVI: The Artful Non Sequitur


36” x 36”

Techniques: :  Machine pieced, hand embroidered and hand quilted with x’s
Cottons including Fortuny fabric

In both law and common usage, a non sequitur is a statement in which the conclusion does not follow from its premise.  In this quilt, I disconnected from my usual dialogue with commercial fabric and pursued a different logic, transitioning between unrelated patterns and colors to achieve an outcome that does not necessarily follow from the preceding section.   Does this make me a non sequilter?
