Title: Monica Lynn “Connections” - 25" x 25"

Description: This quilt is a family collaboration. My Dad, Stuart Lynn, designed the flowers and vines for my Mom, Barbara Lynn, to appliqué. She basted the piece with red thread for quilting when she became bedridden. Mom asked me to finish some of her projects including this quilt. It embodied so much of my mother’s style, talent, and handiwork, and I did not want to do anything to take that away including the red basting thread. As I quilted, I heard her voice: “loosen up,” “no one will notice the imperfections,” “you do such beautiful work.” I’m unimaginably sad that I cannot show it to Mom. I left some of the red basting in the quilt. I will remove it one day, but for now, I am still not ready. “My mother sewed the foundation. All I have to do now is thread my own needle.” Paraphrased from a statement by Loretta Pettway Bennett, Gee’s Bend Alabama
