Artist Statement:

Silk Bars 1+2+3. Double sashing sewn to quilted strips - a technique used for double sided one layered patchwork. Handwoven Indian silk. I wanted a new life for the precious quilted cut-offs of an other project. I am a quilter since 1984. After coordinated Europa Quilts 1 and 2 in Leuven I became a co-founder of www.q-art.be which exists to provide a network for quilt artists living in Belgium. My passion is teaching new techniques to like-minded quilters. Contemporary wall hangings are shown in Europe, USA and Japan.

Techniques & Materials Used:

Cut-offs from a previous project were made with silk to expensive to throw away. I made double sashing first and then sew the sashing to the quilted strips - a technique used for double sided patchwork. Black binding. Machine made.
