Quilter in Distress: Kathy Sulzman
Rescuer: Betsy Miller
Untitled • 14" x 15"
Kathy: "I started this project a year ago after reading
an article about using Caran d' Arch® on fabric. When brushed out they were a
little pale so I was looking for ways to intensify the color and stared adding
tulle for this purpose. I had used a white on white fabric which resisted the
paint and produced a nice result. Then I started quilting it and liked what was
happening but I think it needs something else."
Betsy: "This piece had many different
techniques in it, including raw-edged piecing, over-dyeing, stenciling and
quilting. It seemed very dark to me, with black netting over much of it so I
cut away some of that and as a tribute to the approach of spring I decided to
brighten it up with some pink flowers. I loved the challenge of trying to get
into the head of another artist to complete the piece."
