Little Alice fell down the hole, bumped her head and bruised her soul” ---Lewis Carroll, Alice in Wonderland Alice in Wonderland was written by Lewis Carroll in 1865. A story does not endure for 155 years without capturing the imagination of generations. It is the story of a world turned on its head. It begs us to question everything we know, throw away our assumptions and succumb to nonsense. The loosest grip on reality wins! Wonderland captures the most essential nature of what I want my fabric to be and why I quilt... escapism. When the weight of the world is too much I turn to needle and thread.
