This quilt is about my sister Judy Cunningham who worked all her life for the railroad, first as a clerk and eventually as a yardmaster in Flint, Michigan.
Her love of trains was endless, and I will never forget taking her to experience all the modes of transportation here in San Francisco the only time she visited.
Memories of her, of our hometown, of the many trains that passed through her life all came together as I worked on this quilt.
The quilt, signed with Joe’s embroidered signature, comes with a four-inch hanging sleeve, Certificate of Authenticity, and a custom cotton bag. Shipping and insurance are free to a domestic US address.
Joe Cunningham is an internationally known quilt artist, writer, teacher and lecturer. His quilts have been shown worldwide and are represented in the collections of major museums. He lives in San Francisco, working in his gallery/studio in the South of Market district.
