Quiltettes, I bring you something very special and exciting today. Although I like to pretend that I know all there is to know about this quilty world of ours, the truth is there are some avenues in quilting that I know very little about.
Before talking about my freshly grown fear of wasting fabric, I want to give you some backstory. As some of you already know, I'm currently pregnant with my first baby. In the years leading up to this life change, I had naively assumed that I would take after the women in my family and be a champion of all things prenatal!
We're back with another amazing and inspiring fiber artist! If there ever was an artist who could inspire you to just “do you,” it’s Rachel Clark.
Rachel Clark’s one-of-a-kind wearable quilt pieces are some of the most colorful, intricate, and personal examples of fiber art I’ve ever seen.
Have you been enjoying our Fab Fiber Artist blog series? I hope so because I've never felt more inspired by the strong women who's shoulders on which I stand. If you missed reading about Nancy Crow, Faith Ringgold, Rachel Clark or Judith Scott, be sure to get caught up because today we're talking about not just an author, entrepreneur, pattern writer and fabric designer, this person can be credited by some as single-handedly saving quilting from becoming a dying art.
When I learned to quilt years and years ago, there was no Instagram or Facebook and for the most part, quilters had not yet fully emerged onto the internet. (To their credit, it was still kinda new-ish. It was 2002.) It wasn't until I discovered social media that I discovered the wonderful world of modern quilting.
