Quilt painting

For this project, I wanted to bring the traditionally feminine art of quilting into the patriarchal tradition of abstract expressionism. Long before women could vote, they inserted their political opinions into quilt designs. This log cabin quilt pattern became popular in the 1860s as a way to show support for President Lincoln, who was born in a log cabin.
