Modern Art Quilts

I have been experimenting with making Modern Art Quilts for several years now and enjoy the process of creating using a tactile and textural material. The quilts that I have been making, for the most part, are intuitive and are crafted slowly. I don’t have many quilts created because they require more time and thought and develop through a variety of processes. Unlike my paintings or drawings they are not creations that I can do quickly and require a commitment in the creation.

I do enjoy the process of making them and look forward to making more unique and creative wall hangings. My process is not dependant on traditional quilting processes but I combine a variety of tradition techniques in a modern manner. Shapes, lines and form play an important part of the creation of these modern art quilts.

The following wall hanging I did using a thread drawing process and the coloured on the fabric using pencil crayon. I made many of these types of wall hangings.

As I was working on making these wall hanging I was thinking about different textural effects and using thread and needle to create a variety of visual and tactile abstract imagery.
