Art Quilts

I just clicked over to visit my friend in Vermont at self taught artist where I learned about Nellie Durand and her wonderful quilts. Nellie's album page on the development of a design for a spiral themed quilt is worth a study for insight into the design process. Look how she transformed this wonderful dots fabric. She has a blog called Exquisite Corpse Textiles, and is a follower of Fibermania.

As a former research librarian I've developed the habit of looking into things. . . and I'm easily distracted so one thing leads to another!
