This is the first of a series of two-layered quilts. I was working professionally at the time developing training materials, some of which were multimedia. I asked myself how could I create an interactive quilt, with which the viewer could directly interface. Thus was born the interactive series. Also at this time, I had a brush with melanoma which caused me to reflect deeply on my artistic endeavors and to take a step into a new arena Ã¢â‚¬â€œ this quilt was that step. The top embellished piece lifts to reveal a second quilt underneath with a black and white embroidered flower. This quilt has won several awards in the Contemporary category.
