The Quilt Show Puzzle: "Nereids" by Mary Pal

Do a puzzle of Mary Pal's quilt, Nereids.


Nereids is a piece that Mary had made when she was entering an exhibition in Taiwan, the theme of which was water. Mary's first thought when she heard that was, "Uh oh, I don't do water I do portraits." Upon reflection, she remembered she had received a gift of a mug with a woman on it whose head was coming out of the waves and Mary realized she could make that image in cheesecloth. And so, she began to make the waves out of cheesecloth and she sculpted the women's faces to fit into the waves. The title of the quilt comes from Greek mythology where the Nereids are sea nymphs, who "often accompany Poseidon, the god of the sea, and can be friendly and helpful to sailors."
