The Sticks Quilt came out of my work on the large Durga Quilt. As I was making Durga, I tried out many different design concepts for her spear. Ultimately, I chose to make her spear out of heart shaped cut glass beads strung with wire. What to do with all of the other spears? Never fear, Durga had the answer herself. She wanted them ALL. The Sticks Quilt is the collection of Durga’s many spears, all in one place. I had a great time embellishing them and finding different objects to serve as spear heads. When the Durga Quilt was first displayed at the Narthex Gallery at Saint Peter’s Lutheran Church in Manhattan, the Sticks Quilt was also hung near by. Durga’s many spears were there with her.
