Before I create the August folder for photographs, since this is a quilting blog, I thought I would show additional photographs I took of Aminah Robinson's work at the Underground Railroad Freedom Center in Cincinnati, Ohio. Some of these photos are of the same area, but the different angle or zoom leads the eye to different areas so I am including them.
She uses the term, "RagGonNon" which is a play on rag on and on. She makes her work using found objects, like fabric, beads, shells, leaves, thread, and paint.
There is stuffed pieces here, creating dimension.
You can see that there are different "blocks" with different themes, joined together. Some of it is painted.
You can enlarge this label to see more information about these pieces. As you can see, they are huge, and measured in feet instead of inches.
As you can see, the edges aren't straightened.
Because it is so big, it is hard to show the top of the quilt.
