A friend pointed me to a website that sells materials/yarns/embellishments, etc. for art quilting. Of course I had to click the link, and found oodles of fabrics, hand dyes, etc., to tempt me. The site also has a blog, with links to other blogs. And that’s where I went down the internet rabbit hole.
Here are some details of quilts by Judy Coates Perez from her website.
This one, “The Three of Swords,” does the combination of machine and hand stitching I’ve been experimenting with. And look at the opening in the heart that’s filled with circles. And the variegated thread in the blue area. Sigh!
And here’s her “Moon Garden,” with a paper silhouette feel. I think the most beautiful part of this one is the back.
