A look back through the Magazine


Dominie Nash, AM’63, based her machine-appliqued and hand-dyed quilt Stills From a Life 29 on a photograph she took and subtitled Inge’s Table. Inspired by the vivid reds and yellows of the table setting, plus the interesting shapes of the various objects, the 60 x 138–inch quilt was displayed through May 26 in a solo exhibition at Virginia's Arlington Arts Center.
