Madeleine | Mojave

Courtepointe mojave chez madeleine

Rencontrée lors d’un marché, Madeleine souhaitait obtenir une courtepointe sur mesure réalisée à partir de deux critères: utiliser en partie des tissus appartenant à sa mère et s’inspirer de la symbolique de l’arbre.

Lorsque la courtepointe sur mesure fut achevée, vint le moment de lui désigner un nom propre. Sans consulter la cliente, rapidement, le nom de “Mojave*” paru tout désigné. Lorsque Madeleine reçut sa courtepointe et pris connaissance du nom, quelle ne fut pas la surprise! Pour Madeleine, le désert de Mojave était extrêmement significatif. Elle y avait vécu un souvenir de voyage extraordinaire qui impliquait notamment son premier voyage avec son amoureux, la rencontre de sa belle-famille en Arizona et un marathon dans le désert de Death Valley.

Comme quoi l’art a la force de communiquer et de symboliser beaucoup à la fois.

*Mojave est le nom d’un désert situé dans l’ouest des États-Unis, connu pour accueillir l’arbre de Josué (Joshua tree).


We met Madeleine at an arts and crafts fair. She wanted to have a custom quilt made with two criteria in mind: it had to include some of her mother's old fabrics and use the symbolism of the tree as an inspiration.

When the custom quilt was completed, it was time to give it a name. Without consulting the customer, the name "Mojave*" immediately came to mind. When Madeleine received her quilt and learned the name, what a surprise! For Madeleine, the Mojave Desert was extremely meaningful. She had fond memories of an extraordinary trip there. It was her first time travelling with her lover, where she met her new in-laws in Arizona and ran a marathon in the Death Valley Desert.

This just shows how art has the power to communicate and symbolize many things at once.

*Mojave is the name of a desert in the western United States, known to be home to the Joshua tree.
