I made about three traditional quilts but my corners didn’t meet—I’m not someone who likes to draw buildings or cars or straight lines—and I thought ‘I’m never going to make it in this world,’ ” she says. Her home state of Ohio, however, was at the heart of early art quilting and proved the perfect place to explore the medium: Gorman took fiber classes in the early 1990s but continued working in a number of media, including collage and drawing on clayboard.
