I am piecing for cover. I am quilting to save my life. In the middle of a successful academic career, art historian Janet Catherine Berlo finds herself literally at a loss for words.
A severe case of writer's block forces her to abandon a book manuscript mid-stream; she finds herself quilting instead. Scorning the logic, planning, and order of scholarship and writing, she immerses herself in free-wheeling patterns and vivid colors. For eighteen months she spends all day, every day, quilting.
In the midst of what she calls her 'quilt madness' Berlo questions why her successful career is momentarily halted at mid-life. This book penetrates to the very heart of women's lives, focusing on their relationships to family and friends, to work, to daily tasks. It is a search for meaning at mid-life, a search for an integration of career and creativity. Janet Catherine Berlo is an art historian who specializes in Native American art, a creative writer, and a quilter. She is Susan B.

Can I Let You Go? Review quote "This intriguing and unusual memoir deals with an month period in the mids when Berlo, a professor of art history and of gender and women's studies at the University of Rochester, was afflicted by writer's block. A successful academic author Berlo abandoned a book she had nearly completed and began devoting a major portion of her time to quilt making Berlo's vivid account of historical quilting as well as descriptions of her own projects are so compelling, readers may be inspired to try quilting themselves Most of all, Berlo credits the art of quilt making with teaching her to take joy in the process rather than the finished product and to accept messiness and patience as valuable parts of creativity.
