Quilter in Distress: Martha Betts
Rescuer: Gail Strout
Untitled • 32" x 27"
Martha: "I bought these fabrics because I loved the color
combination. I cut simple blocks and sewed them together. I thought it would
look good stretched over canvas as a design element, but it lacks pizazz and
so it sat unfinished."
Gail: "I pulled out cloth from my collection that I felt
would go with the original square. I wanted to keep some of the feeling of the
square. I saved the elements I liked best and that I felt were the most
important and successful to the original square. I used more curves and softer
lines and colors than the original prints."
