Michael James is one of the few men who has achieved success in a field dominated by women. He works in fiber, and the form he has chosen is the time-honored quilt. James is not afraid to machine his quilts, nor to experiment with colors and patterns. Rehoboth Meander: Quilt #150 is a visually exciting design with vibrant colors and a sense of restless energy.
