This was Kathy's first attempt at
English Paper Piecing.
Hand Pieced and Hand Quilted.
Kathy said she decided to
"work outside her traditional box"
A wide variety of techniques
Kathy is known for her beautiful hand quilting.
"This was an exercise in free motion hand quilting,
if there is such a term."
Homespun Sampler (2011)
I could see how Kathy's precision
as a draftsman
comes through in
how all of her plaids
line up perfectly even.
On the cards accompanying each quilt,
Kathy shares with us some of the challenges she has experienced in life,
and how quilting has provided comfort and healing:
"The last 6-8 inches around the three sides were
had quilted after I lost the use of my right hand
from a small stroke. This was the perfect exercise
to get the use of my hand back."
These are just a small sampling of Kathy's quilts on display
at the Gilbert Museum.
To view more,
the show will be open through the end of May.
