Fabric Art for Walls
Quilts were traditionally used to keep us warm. The tradition of quilting has evolved over the years to include quilts for walls. Still consisiting of the minimum three-layer sandwich, they no longer keep our bodies warm, but warm our spirits with their visual content.
Fabric wall art is not limited to quilted art, though. Much the same way a painter applies colour with paint, a fabric artist will use ready-made fabrics to fill the palette or will create new colours via dyes, resists and stains. Stitches become the lines of a drawing; buttons, beads and other found items add dimension. The possibilities are endless.
