As the Artist-In-Residence at the Cape Cod Community College in the fall of 2000, I taught an impromptu class in stained glass. Anyone in the community who was interested in a crash course in the techniques of stained glass was invited. Our plan was to take the pieces they made and assemble them into a glass quilt to hang in the lobby of the art center.

The class used pieces of three-dimensional glass I had collected over the years as well as the traditional flat colored glass, each person creating his or her own unique design.

The artists were proud of their squares

Bob then made a frame, 8' x 8' for the squares.

The resulting quilt was magnificent.
