    Laura and I had a riveting discussion about the art, the emotion, and the expression that are so visible in her one-of-a-kind pieces. Her words describe her technique the best:
    "My material is salvaged wood gathered in the aftermath of environmental tragedies, such as Hurricane Sandy, forest fires in Gatlinburg, Tennessee, and from numerous other unnamed storms in Massachusetts. The wood is from damaged and wrecked houses – cedar sidings, screen doors, kitchen cabinets, wood tables- and repurposed into luminous, patchwork constructions. Through these difficult situations, my work is filled with vibrant color and uplifting hopefulness. I never paint the wood, they are as I found them and bear the marks of usage through their nail holes and scratches reminding us that material has memory."

    And of course I had questions! 
    How do you store a wooden stash? And what's fussy cutting? And how big are your wood quilts?Prepare to be amazed and inspired by Laura's creations. You can view the exhibition we referred to here: New England Quilt Museum

    Cheryl Clossin has been quilting for a long time, and her pieces could more rightly be called works of art. She's pretty sure it's impossible to embellish fabric too much, whether it's applique...embroidery...beading...you name it. If you don't believe me, check out her Instagram feed! And zoom in!

    We chat at length about bugle beads, French knots, dealing with knotty backs, finding serendipitious fabrics, Prince, and the value of community. And that's just the first 10 minutes😄

    You can see Cheryl's work on her Instagram feed right here.
