cherri house, quilter

February 4, 2011

yesterday i posted about a woman, fred shand, who created quilts with a very organic feel to them. non-traditional.

i thought it would be fun to post about the opposite. cherri house is a well known quilter who has written a variety of books, one of which is city quilts, where she takes her inspiration from the city. sometimes when you are walking in and around and through a city, you can forget to stop and admire just how amazing it can be.

cherri has managed to do that, and then put it in a quilt, go figure.

fred shand, quilter

February 3, 2011

just the other day i was talking to a friend who quilts, and she mentioned that she is growing a little tired of her regular angular designs and expressed her desire to explore some more organic, free form shapes.  i, myself have never done any sort of quilting, but i can really appreciate all the work that goes into each one.  i know it’s no simple task… people spend months on a quilt, sometimes years.

a few days after speaking with my friend, i saw these by fred shand, an english artist that anthropologie is featuring.  definitely not your typical quilter, she uses a variety of methods from silk-screening to painting to sewing and quilting in order to make each one-of-a-kind piece.
