I have been a member of Studio Art Quilt Associates for several years, but this is the year I stepped up to contribute to the Benefit Auction. My approach was to be playful.
The Pantone color, tangerine tango, was my starting point. I worked with upcycled decorator weight silk and cotton and also casement fabric for window treatments. I abstracted a fashion photograph into a triangle, a square, and an oval. And then cut, pieced, sliced – several times. I eventually created two small quilts, one stacked upon the other. And yes, it was fun to fashion the work in this way.
The quilts are attached to fabric covered stretcher bars with copper nails.
My work — along with many, many other fine contributions — are on display via SAQA’s online galleries. It is great fun to look at the variety of work in the 12″ square format.
