Paying it Forward: Dreaming Quilts Series

Paying it Forward: Dreaming Quilts Series

Astrid Hilger Bennett

The global pandemic starting in 2020 has created enormous challenges for individuals, small businesses, social service agencies and our cherished cultural institutions. In July 2020, needing color, I started the Dreaming Quilts project, using 30 years of my own fabrics to create 15 one-of-a-kind, full sized, functional quilts to be hung on walls or used for bedding. Representing a personal art history of sorts, I let the designs evolve as they wanted to. Color and stitching contributed to a practice of solace and healing.
