The Amazing Quilts of Chawne Kimber

Lately I’ve been researching textiles as historical sources for women’s history. In this process, I came across the amazing quilts of mathematician Chawne Kimber.

Quilt titled "The One For Eric" by Chawne Kimber

“Chawne Kimber is making some of the most powerful artworks today about race, language, women’s rights, and police brutality—all with a needle and thread,” Maria Hlohowskyj (from womenarts.org).  That sentence was written three years ago and yet feels like it was written yesterday.

I can’t think of a better quilt to illustrate these heartbreaking times. Follow her work on Flickr: https://www.flickr.com/photos/cauchycomplete/albums and Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/cauchycomplete.
