Watt & Shand #9, detail 2
You can read all about the inspiration for this series of works --the former Watt & Shand department store in Lancaster, PA, that was re-purposed into a hotel and convention center--on my website, and/or by clicking on the “Watt & Shand” tab at the top of the page and tracking back the works in progress and the places the quilts have traveled to. I little dreamed, when I first turned the corner on King St. several years ago, and was mesmerized by the sight of the empty façade of the grand Beaux Arts building, how much my life would be enriched by following my muse. It’s been quite a ride!
