About Frances Murphy
"Dolls With Balls" was inspired by a photograph of my mother (one of the first women to practice law in Idaho) and four of her friends at a bowling tournament in Portland, Oregon in 1965. Each of these women was a local businesswoman and community leader. Pretty ballsy for women in 1965 in a southeastern Idaho town. The quilt is made from vintage and commercial fabrics, photograph on fabric, and glitter. The pieces are appliqued and the quilt is machine quilted.
