"Pauses Between the Notes."
13" x 16" (2007).
Original design.
Dupioni silk, hand-dyed cottons, charms, beads. Machine pieced and quilted.

Collection of Anna Earnhardt

At the May 2007 SAQA conference, attendees were asked to bring small bags of "studio droppings," scraps from a previous project. These bags were swapped and handed out, and members were asked to make a small piece from these leftovers. My bag, from Mary Stardt, contained fabric scraps, the charms, and this quote:

β€œThe notes I handle no better than many pianists. But the pauses between the notes
β€” ah, that is where the art resides!”

β€” Arthur Schnabel, in Chicago Daily News, June 11 1958
