I really appreciated this post. I always wonder about quilters that I haven't heard about for years. I love to see how their quilting has changed from their beginnings.

Chris' work is so exciting - I'd love to go to Manhattan to see the exhibit, but will have to do all my viewing by clicking. Thanks for the info and the links.

Beautiful art work in quilting and the fabrics she dyes, works some wonderfully with the pieces. I can see why she is honored.

How wonderful to see and hear about Chris again. She was such a pioneer in the quilt movement of the 70's, one of many of those quilters who along with jinny Beyer and Roberta Horton etc. really sparked the quiltmaker in so many of us who started quilting 35+ years ago. Many thanks.

I ditto Scrappy above. So great to see what Chris is producing these days. I first met Chris in 1982 in Virginia. Followed her work after that for a number of years but haven't crossed paths with her since.
