Thus this exhibit shows a variety of art processes within the fiber art world, from quilt art to felting and embroidery. The exhibition runs through February 26, 2012.
My stitched digital quilt, Aspen Reflection Watercolor, was juried into the show.
The February/March issue of Quilters Newsletter features some of the quilts in an exhibition of the Front Range Contemporary Quilters, a Colorado-Wyoming based group of art quilters.

More and more I like the result of printing directly on silk with the pigment inks of my Epson 2200. I buy quantities of silk, mostly silk charmeuse, from Rupert, Gibbon and Spider. I don’t use any presoaked fabric or any pretreatments on my silk. I don’t even prewash it. I attach it to freezer paper, usually in 13″ X 36″ or 44″ panels and run it through the printer.
I usually let it “dry” for 24 hours before removing it from the [...]
I am proud to be showing a quilt in Form Not Function 2012: Quilt Art at the Carnegie, which opens on January 6 and runs through March 3, 2012. (www.carnegiecenter.org)
All the quilts in this series use altered images of aspen leaves swirling in a pond. I have changed the colors and values, and used several different sizes. I like the visual texture of the [...]
