SAN JOSE CONVENTION CENTER: 14'X14' PAINTED QUILTS, COMMISSIONED BY THE CITY OF SAN JOSE, CALIFORNIA REDEVELOPMENT AGENCY From 1989-1993, I worked on two huge fourteen foot square quilts which were installed in the San Jose Convention Center. I rented a very large warehouse studio space and I had a 16 foot high working wall built so that I could see the quilts as I translated the designs into fabric. I was paid $36,000 for "Animal Spiral" and $41,000 for "Butterfly". This process was challenging and rewarding!
