Kathy Desroches is a fiber artist from our area. She has shown her work and taught fabric quilting and journaling classes for many years now. She offers some of these classes at artstream. She also is an avid knitter and has attempted now on two accounts to teach me to knit... she doesn't give up easily and knows I can do it ... sometime! She also teaches knitting for artstream in the fall and winter to those who actually "get it". She has a fabric journaling class which helps you produce this amazingly cool fabric book at the end, all about whatever you wish to journal about or illustrate with fabric techniques. I have admired Kathy's work for a very long time and am pleased to show it to you here today. She has a number of pieces at the gallery at the moment ... which will appear on the new shop very soon! Stay tuned.... until then here is her website which you can purchase her beautiful art quilts at.

The word for the day is ... dabble ... as in trying a little of this and a little of that, your toes in the ocean, and ducks in a pond.

How does she display them? Does she hang them as it, stretch them on a frame, put a traditional frame on? Lovely patterning.

This quilt is amazing...and "fabric journaling"--what a beautiful concept! Inspirational, as always...

Kathy displays them with a rod on the back so they are not behind glass, which i do not like in a quilt. you should be able to see the colors and the feel of the fabric I believe right up front.
Thanks for asking A!

I love quilts that are like paintings... They just draw you in and you can't look away!
