Last fall my first glimpse of Kathryn Harmer Fox‘s award winning The Three Watchers stopped me in my tracks.
Her arresting and exceptional work is unique in the world of quilting. We were delighted to have her as our cover artist for our January/February issue of the magazine.
In our latest issue (May/June 2017) we’re pleased to include an article that details more about her process.
Hailing from South Africa, she combines detailed drawings with a variety of sewing and quilting techniques to create her work. As she says “I am a figurative rather than a landscape artist. The figure can be human or animal, bird, fish, or flower; creatures big and small entice me to render them in paint, fabric, and thread.”
Her process incorporates embedding tiny snippets of fabric through thread work, along with creating detail through free motion machine embroidery. As you can see, the results are amazing!
Intrigued? Then be sure to check our more about Kathryn and her work in our January/February and May/June 2017 issues.
