In this interview, quilt artist Duncan Slade explains to Karen Musgrave how Nuveen Inc. commissioned a quilt for their headquarters in Chicago. The result was "Waterfall," a very large piece that incorporated digital and traditional quilting techniques. Slade also explains his place between the art and quilt worlds and his relationship with his co-worker and wife, Gayle Fraas. He ends the interview with his views on the importance of finding the right venue for artistic quilts and how his work changes him, but emphasizes his absence of ego.
