After my last post, and mentioning Dianne Firth, I have been thinking about other quilters who predominantly use lines in their work. Here are a few examples of ones I know about.
Nellie Durand her lake series is a good example of lines (strips of fabric) magically blended together by the addition of quilting lines. If you have ever doubted the transformative effect of quilting, look at her before and after pictures of her lake pieces.
Judy Turner - Judy is a Canberra based quilter - unfortunately she doesn't have a website, and I could find very few images of her work on the web. She is mainly known for her use of colour - she was one of the very early practitioners of 'colourwash' style quilts. But my favourites are the pieces she makes from couched woollen yarn. I could only find these on the web. But my absolute favourites are her landscapes/seascapes. I couldn't find any images of those on the net, but I do have one from a postcard I purchased of her work at an exhibition some time ago.
And Lisa Call's work.
I am sure there are lots more - send me some links of your favourites!
