The Flood
By Carrie, Whole Cloth Designs

The Flood measures 40″ X 40″ and Carrie did most of the applique and all the embroidery by hand. The top is linen, with recycled fabrics (cotton, wool and linen). Carrie writes, “It is about my experience with postpartum depression… I used the image of our house to personify my experience.”

Carrie was influenced by Louise Bourgeois’ early work Femme Maison, 1947, and used a stem stitch, back stitch and running stitch for the embroidery. Read more about the story behind the quilt on Carrie’s Whole Cloth Designs blog, find detail images here and visit Carrie’s Etsy shop too.
