Measure For Measure: Quilt Your Response

 by William Shakespeare

For years I wanted to create images using textiles in response to Shakespeare's plays.  Measure For Measure was one of them.  

How much richer and more dynamic would the project be if more women were involved?  
So, one year ago I pitched the idea of making quilt blocks in response to Shakespeare's text to master quilter Mimi Dietrich and her group, "Mimi's Grad Class". 
Everyone purchased a copy of Measure For Measure and began reading and discussing the themes in the play.  Then, a few months later we began making the quilt blocks.  In December, the first book was completed.  This is a sneak peek of the finished work.  

In 2024, we will continue to create more!
