Abstract: Quilt making, in its simplest form, is the taking of fragments from various sources and putting them together to form a new symbol that gives new meaning to those fragments, collectively. This thesis discusses my incorporation of the language of quilt making in my work, transforming its' ideals to reflect on issues and experiences that occur within families and communities, and to make quilt making cross the line from craft to fine art.
