Wouldn't this block make a great Christmas tree if you used the right fabrics? Find out what it's called when you play the Jinny Beyer Memory Match game.



Artist Statement about Grifology #1: "Languages have always fascinated me. Inspired by my 2018 100 Day Project (improv appliqué postcards in black and white) and comments that those pieces looked like hieroglyphics or a secret language, I continued my exploration and made 20 improv bias appliqué blocks. Extending the language idea, I positioned the blocks in a letter format in the order in which they were made. The name, Grifology, is a play on graphology, the study of handwriting and symbols, and my own last name." - Debbie Grifka
