Bisa Butler on Creating New Narratives Through "Portrait Quilts"

From CBS This Morning"Artist Bisa Butler has been called a modern-day Griot – but instead of using words to tell stories, she uses stitches and cloth.

Only a truly beautiful soul could produce these amazing pieces of art. The colors and the people just reach out to touch you. Please have this woman on The Quilt Show so that more people will know her amazing talent and vision.

I saw this segment when it aired on CBS this Morning Saturday, and I hoped Bisa Butler would also be seen on The Quilt Show. Kudos to The Quilt Show. Bisa's quilts are so masterfully created. I love her use of color and shading!
