I happened to stop by my sister’s house this weekend, and as always was interested to see what she’s up to artistically. Karin is talented in a variety of media, but perhaps her favorite is glass. She’s currently working on a mosaic that is a commission for her church, St. Mary’s of Piscataway, Maryland.
As I admired Karin’s work I thought about by how quilt artists interpret a variety of media using fabric. Karin carefully selects and cuts her glass to achieve just the right color, line and texture for each aspect of her compositions. Sound like any quilters you know if you substitute “fabric” for “glass”?
Well known quilter Phyllis Cullen certainly does this in her work. She emulates stained glass by using a variety of clever techniques. In our November/December 2014 issue she shared how she creates beautiful quilts in this style.
I love the glow that Phyllis achieved through her fabric selection, as well as the detailed quilting that creates such wonderful texture.
Intrigued? Check out our November/December 2014 issue to see how Phyllis achieves such a beautiful result.
