Bits and Pieces
Mackerel Sky presents, “Stitched
Landscapes: Bits and Pieces ”, a collection of fiber art quilts for the wall utilizing numerous interesting quilting techniques, by Haslett, Michigan artist, Carol Trojanowski . Carol’s amazing use of various stitching techniques and enthusiasm for fiber result in beautiful landscapes.
Carol explains: “Creating art quilts feeds my passion for working with fabric, color
and design. My quilts may look like paintings from a distance, yet closer
examination proves them to be pieces of fused fabric embellished with free motion stitching and thread sketching or hundreds of thousands of pieces of quilted shredded fabric as found in my confetti quilts. The quilts are original designs using photographs for inspiration.
“Quilts are made on a traditional quilt
sandwich with fabric, batting, and fusible
web using a variety of fabrics including
batiks, landscape prints, organza and tulle.
Silk, rayon, and polyester threads are used for stitching and occasionally various
paints, markers, and fabric pigments are applied for special effects.”
This is a lovely show. Please join us on Sunday, December 3, 2017, from noon until 4 a.m. to meet Carol at an opening reception for “Stitched Landscapes: Bits and Pieces" and to celebrate the Winter Holidays. The exhibit will run through January 23, 2018.
