erin gafill quilt

“I sewed this quilt from my grandmother Lolly’s garments and leftover fabrics during the first phase of the pandemic,” artist Erin Gafill writes. “It’s now hanging in the first gallery of the Monterey Museum of Art as part of my show Color Duets. I sewed this in my grandmother’s house in Big Sur above the restaurant she founded, Nepenthe.” Materials used in the project include wool, cotton, polyester, nylon, rayon, sequins and thread.
