Monique Romney is a craftswoman who makes quilts, quiche and paintings. She is often thinking about women’s work and it’s worth.
“Quilting is not only women’s work but it has been black women’s work for a long time. I meditate while I am cutting the pieces, sewing them on the machine, then later painting them. Quilting is a way to get in touch with my past while making them for people to use in the future. This particular quilt is for my nephew who will be born in February. I have been thinking about my new black nephew and what his body means under Trump’s reign; the quilt is to keep him warm.”
