2001 Weekly Quilts Artist Statement 

I am making one quilt each week in 2001. The rules are: 
-They will be 4" wide by 6" tall 
-Each quilt can be made any time during the week, from Sunday through Saturday. 
-The purpose of this project was to play and experiment. 
-They will be whole cloth quilts . 
-The backgound cloth will always be white cotton. 
-As I work each week, I can not throw out the orginal piece and start over with a new one. 
-There are no limits on what techniques I can use. 
-The edges of each quilt will be finished with a single black line and a zigzag stitch.
 -Each quilt will be dated and numbered on the back, with notes about what is happening that week or what is influencing me.
