A quilt is the ultimate in comfort: warm, soft, traditional. Cathy Jeffers' quilts speak to comfort in a different way - she sought comfort in their making. Eschewing the traditional patterns often associated with quilt-making, Jeffers tells stories, both autobiographical and imagined, employing a raw-edge technique that results in unusual depth and contrast. The work of the Dayton-based art quilter is on exhibition at Fresh A.I.R. Gallery, which maintains regular hours through the holidays.
