During the early days of the 2020 Pandemic, when the weather was dark and cold, McFerran started to create quilts. Her quilts are not formally planned- she does not use historic patterns. She combines elements intuitively and relies on the haptic appeal of selected textiles. The subject matter is personal memory and McFerran thinks of the collection as Memory Maps. As Spring turned into summer, political unrest also found its way into her work.
