Drawing Composing, 56 x 71.5 cm by Julie Mcintyre

Composing, 56 x 71.5 cm

Lithography, assorted papers and thread

I wanted to get a lot of pleasurable activities down here – collecting and displaying specific items represented by the jug image, as well as writing and reading (suggested by the sheet music and newspaper imagery). It is the smallest quilt in the collection because I wanted a sense of intimacy while mimicking the wall mounted cube shelving unit I remember in a family member’s home. I thought of the case as an adult version of a dollhouse, with its compartmentalized treasures displayed together, but deliberately separated.  Quilt Block Pattern: Attic Window.
