Growing up on a Minnesota farm and living in New York City for the past two decades have given Victoria Findlay Wolfe a unique perspective in her art. Indeed, her work often moves cyclically between references to her rural familial roots and her current cosmopolitan locale. She is both a woman with strong Midwestern sensibilities and an influencer in the now-global Modern Quilt movement. Combined, these attributes result in a body of work she aptly describes as “traditions made modern.”
This Crazy-style quilt was inspired by a polyester Crazy patchwork pillow (inset picture) made by Findlay Wolfe's grandmother, Elda Wolfe, in the early 1980s.
