THE TRANSPARENT SERIES
I make “transparent quilts” - quilts, because I use “quilterly” piecing and layering techniques, and transparent because I work with silk organza. This semi-transparent fabric allows the viewer to see both the front layer and the back layer of the quilt structure at the same time. Each side affects and complicates the pattern and colors of the quilt, when the shapes divide and the colors combine. Often additional shapes, representational or geometric, are caught between the layers of the quilt and held in place with a running stitch of embroidery thread.
