Artist Statement: "I wanted to stretch the boundaries of the typical stuffed and heavy quilt by using repurposed sheer materials. They are layered in such a way that their colors combine as the light shines through them. The stitching is held to a minimum to enhance the natural textures of the materials."
Materials: Used Dryer Sheets, Curtain Sheers, Non-Woven Fabrics, Ribbon
Techniques Used: Machine Stitched, Hand Painted, Heat Knife Cut
