Fetuses at the Fair

It’s Fair Time again. This year we have the 151st Annual Martha’s Vineyard Agricultural Society Cattle Show and Fair. Midafternoon, I took a stroll through the main exhibit hall, and report that the quiltwork is as interesting as ever, well worth a good look. If you’re on the island right now, stop by the Fair, and marvel.

The artistic talent in these works is stunning.

You see right. It’s a fetus quilt.

Astonishing.

Not your grandma’s quilt.

  1. Deborah, I had the same wondering, and took a step from there to ponder if it was one grief response to miscarriage, in an art therapy, “engagement in the creative process can truly heal” – sort of way. Whatever prompted it, it is quite a creation.

  2. i can appreciate the creativity, and the quality of the work, but that just plain creeps me out.
