The Quilter: Quilting with Malke

“New York Mosaic” by Susan
“The first thing that struck me when I moved to NY from the Midwest, almost 30 years ago, was the non-stop motion everywhere, the lack of patience and the need for everyone behind me to be somewhere else five minutes ago, if not esterday.  To me, NY is a true mosaic, not a melting pot, with each person a unique part of the whole.  This quilt is based on the subway tile station mosaic motifs, trying to incorporate motion, people, landmarks, traffic and some of the many things NY is know for: finance, communication, entertainment, food, etc.”

“All On Time” By Zmira
“I employed a variation of the log cabin block.  My husband and I enjoy traveling to our favorite spots in the 5 boroughs by subway.  “All On Time” was sewn in honor of an artist who was forced by the Great Depression to give up his scholorship to Pratt Institute to work as a NYC motorman. He later came out of retirement to work at a menial job to pay for the tuition of his daughter as a dance major in NYU so that she could fullfill her dream.”

“The Maze” By Merri
“Out path starts at the hospital [the bottom subway map starts at a hospital] and ends at the cemetery [the top subway map is the cemetery]. Along the way our loved ones watch over us.”

“A Wild Ride on the Subway” By Ellen

“‘ A Wild Ride on the Subway’ fits with the theme of transportation that I have been working on.  From boats to taxis to Volkswagons, getting around NYC can be an adventure!  Born and raised in Brooklyn New York, I have been painting for over 35 years.  Over the past five years, I have been experimenting with fiber art, finding it to be freeing and fun. where as my paintings are formal, my quilts are whimsical and playful.”

“Sweet Dreams” By Madi
“Some people count sheep to help them fall asleep, I count trains.  It works for me since I live a stones-throw from the Q Train that helps lull me to sleep.”
