The Struggle of Titling Work

A Cutter Quilt is traditionally a vintage quilt that has been so badly worn or damaged that it can no longer be repaired but instead is used for pillows, dolls, craft items, or pieces of a new quilt.

It is in that spirit that I am currently investigating the notion of scaring as an act of mending and exploring various sewing and surgery stitches to create something new.

HOWEVER! That is not the most common interpretation of the word "cutter" and the act of inflicting harm rather than mending is

Although I love the notion of "Cutter Quilt" as a title for my work it changes the intent. The name will more than likely reflect the notion of mending.
