This is part of a series of modernist takes on this old and basic traditional quilt pattern, which divides a block into nine equally sized squares. Mark Richard Leach, founding Director of the Mint Museum of Craft & Design, Charlotte, NC, described another quilt in the series, which he owns, as "remarkable, even irresistible for even as the artist has selected a very traditional quilting design, her improvisational approach to cropping, scale, coloration and repetition have resulted in a dramatic and visually compelling art work.”
