I adore this quilt made by a woman in Kentucky back in 1839 to help her deal with the grief over the death of her two young sons.
She stitched a series of fabric coffins around the quilt’s edge with the names of her family on them and unpicked them one by one as the people died….
re-sewing the coffins at the centre inside a graveyard.
Art-therapy at its best?
