Show 1207 - Out of Africa: From Life Experience to Incredible Quilts

Featuring: Hollis Chatelain / Bonnie Browning

Posts On: March 25, 2013


You won’t want to miss this show, as (self-taught!) textile artist Hollis Chatelain visits us on location at friend Caryl Bryer Fallert-Gentry's Bryerpatch Studios in Paducah, KY. Hollis reveals how her previous experiences as a photographer and as a Peace Corps volunteer in West Africa—as well as her vivid dreams!—have informed her amazing, award-winning work. She also shares how she combines a fast-and-fun reverse appliqué technique using recycled denim and hand-dyed fabric to create texture, as well as insight into her incredible threadwork. Then quilter and AQS Executive Director Bonnie Browning drops by to show Hollis, Caryl, Alex, Ricky, and Justin how the fun, relaxing, and improvisational art of the Zentangle can translate to quilting.
