This art quilt is titled "High Line in New York City." The High Line is a 1.45-mile-long linear urban park built in Manhattan on an elevated section of the New York Central Railroad that is no longer used for trains. I wanted to create a piece that explored the contrast between the concrete world and the grassland world and how they can coexist. I based my quilt on a photo of the High Line that was taken by a friend and I chose this particular section because the park designers left a section of the actual railroad tracks to honor the previous life of this park.
It is made of commercial and batik cotton fabrics and is fused raw-edge applique with machine free-motion quilting. It has machine-couched yarn and a knife-edge binding. It comes with a hanging sleeve and rod, ready to hang on a nail.
