Bridges fascinate me. Every time I drive near a river I am aware of the bridges and the patterns they make against the natural landscape. Bridges bring together people and places. They connect us to the larger world. They provide a crossing from the familiar to the unfamiliar. As I have worked with this theme I have become more aware of the symbolism bridges have in relationship to the journey of life. All of the work in this gallery uses my hand dyed fabric. They are machine pieced and machine quilted.
