ABSTRACT
The article focuses on the work and technique of artist Bean Gilsdorf. Her "Goodnight, Sweet Prince" features a three-sided print of the Plymouth Valiant on the 37-foot-long piece quilted with a lily motif. It states that Gilsdorf's work is famous for its ambition and innovative technique. Moreover, it can be observed that the artist bends the quilt back on itself in the sense of engaging strong and masculine imagery with what she calls the domestic-based medium. Gilsdorf is a student of the history of her craft prior to her creation of quilts.
