I make these things because I want people to think about issues beyond the quilt itself.

This week my guest is Chawne Kimber of Cauchy Complete, a modern quilter and a math professor.
Chawne is well known within the quilting community for not only her beautiful quilts but for the subject of her quilts. Through quilting and needlework she explores a wide range of political and cultural topics, creating work that addresses subjects regarding race, identity and social justice.
Just a note to those of you listening with children, are at work, or have other people around you, we do talk about Chawne’s quilts that have been inspired by censorship and other cultural happenings here in the US. Nothing super graphic, but we do use profanity, talk about the killing of Trayvon Martin, and use the word rape quite a few times when discussing a particular quilt. It’s nothing over the top, but I want you to be prepared.
