In Their Genes
 2002, 120" x 90"
machine pieced and quilted
commercial cottons

A wedding gift for two scientist friends. One of them studies ancient human DNA, the other evolution. There is a secret message coded into the DNA. Each set of three base pairs (rungs of the ladder) codes for a single amino acid. Each amino acid has a one-letter abbreviation. I sent them a post card to help them decode the quilt.

This quilt was shown at the 2002 Pacific International Quilt Festival, a juried competition held annually in Santa Clara, CA.
