as an incoming student, at the maine college of art, each new student was asked to make a six inch quilt square which will be put together as a whole quilt to be silent-auctioned off for a school benefit. i made two squares, similar to my embroidered diary. i made two squares and overlapped them. one has my date of birth and the other has the year 2007. each student's block is supposed to indicate 'where the student is from.' this was how i interpreted where i am from. since i will be in school with students who were born in the late '80's, i like the idea of putting my date of birth as part of showing where i am from.
