Whether considering the history of quilting, the continued struggle for women’s rights (in this case reproductive), or the genetics handed down that determine if you are born anatomically a girl or a boy; the notion of legacy is integral to this piece on many levels and thus its title. To begin, I cut pieces from a reclaimed quilt that had holes and stains and sewed them into each section of the anatomical uterus diagram. Next, I reverse appliquéd a square from the reclaimed quilt over the pieces I stitched to the diagram to add dimension and layering as in the body. I then added the fleece and lace border from a dress my daughter wore when she was an infant, thus father underlining the idea of legacy. The piece is finished with ribbon, binding and the squares I pieced together on the back.
