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.
We’ve had two successful rounds of commonly asked quilting questions, but before jumping into round three, I asked on Instagram for more questions you’d like answered. I got so many good ones, I've decided to divide these posts into categories so that the information is more organized and digestible.
Here at SQ HQ we get a lot of wonderful emails from you filled with a wide range of basic quilting questions. After answering these one at a time, it’s finally occurred to me that I could compile these FAQs into a blog series for you to skim and use as a resource.
