Beyond the Stitch – Art Quilt Exhibition
Fran Batrouney, Leslie Edwards and Jann Haggart all approach the intricate craft of Art Quilting in unique ways, bringing their own distinctive style and inspiration to their quilts.
Fran incorporates ethnic fabrics from her travels around the world overlaid with extensive hand stitching that take the viewer on a journey with her on each quilt. While Leslie’s quilts are designed around her hand-dyed fabric, with hand and machine quilting designed to highlight and enhance the dyed materials rather than draw the eye. These are paired with Jann Haggart whose work is deeply rooted in her connection to nature, and is depicted mindfully using mainly upcycyled fabrics and threads.
Together the three artists show that Art Quilting is an ever expanding and thriving artistic medium full of diversity and creativity that is worth exploring.
