I've finished quilting "Ice Bridge," another of my mother's amazing photographs. If you've ever lived in an old house in a cold environment, you'll know how the ice can build up on the inside of a drafty window in the winter. My mom makes macro photographic art out of often unlikely sources, including this sunrise through a tiny bit of ice on a window in her home in Maine. I had it printed on fabric and quilted it. It now hangs (temporarily) on the front porch of my family home in Nova Scotia, surrounded by a 38-foot wall of drafty old glass—a fitting respite.
