Mah Jongg

Mah Jongg
Melody Crust
Dimensions: 62”w X 69” h

Mah Jongg. An ancient Chinese diversion concealed by the royalty for centuries. A game. Color and texture in dots and tiles interweaved. A puzzle. Intricate geometric designs in endless combinations. An attempt to express the essence I experience. The flexibility and softness of fabric allow my hands to create what my spirit feels. Was I Chinese royalty in another life?

Many commercial cotton fabrics create the design. This quilt is hand appliqued, machine pieced and quilted.
