SIMPLICITY + UTILITY
I’m drawn to the simplicity and utility of this nautical language. Each flag represents a letter or number, and has a specific meaning, for communicating at sea. The “A” flag is the international code flag for “Diver Down”.
FABRIC + TECHNIQUE
Fabric: All sorts. Various denim and canvas, various contents but mostly cotton.
Techniques: Mix of hand and machine stitching.
Selvage detail on the backside of quilt. Hand-signed by Sarah Yarborough.
Working in nooks, folds and crannies are things that hands do really well.
