Born in England, Dr. Judy Elsley has most recently been a professor in the Eng-lish Department at Weber State University until 2016. Quilting has been the sub-ject of many of Judy's published articles.
Judy will tell how she coped with her journey through breast cancer through quilting. She will show the quilts made during this journey. Her artistic quilts made through this time of her life fell into three categories:
1. What the Body Knew: She made these quilts before her diagnosis. Her body was trying to tell her what was happening although she didn't yet know it.
2. Journal Quilts: She made and wrote on one 8"x8" square every day for 360 days, almost one year. Each of the 9 journal quilts is composed of 40 squares, a ref-erence to the Biblical 40 days and 40 nights in the wilderness.
3. Breast Cancer Quilts: These quilts address some of the issues and concerns she faced as she went through the experience.
