Hand-Quilted Robot Art

Roland Piquepaille writes, "If you live in the Chicago area, you can see the "Female Cyborg Series," a collection of robot-inspired quilts created by Kathy Weaver, a former teacher and painter. According to an article from Pioneer Press, in Glenview, Illinois, Kathy started to create quilts featuring robots about seven years ago, partially because "she is a longtime collector of '50s sci-fi memorabilia." Admission is free and details can be found on the Dittmar Memorial Gallery website. As Chicago is far from Paris, France, I doubt I'll see these quilts. But if you happen to see them, please let me know." For more, see Roland's blog entry on the quilts. Also, you can find photos of the robot quilts on Kathy Weaver's website.
