Featured Artist - February 2014 Laura Wasilowski
I combine vivid fabrics and whimsical stories to make pictorial art quilts. My colorful, hand-dyed fabrics inspire me, as do stories of my family, friends, and home. These pieces often chronicle my life. Each wall piece I make is of my own design, of fused appliqué, often hand-embroidered and machine quilted.
Creating with fused fabric allows my work to be joyful, organic, and more inventive. It is the most direct route from a design idea in my head to the realization of that idea in fabric.
The art of quilting gives me the freedom to express myself and play at the same time. It’s the best job in the world!
