Art Quilting Experiments
Gwen Schagrin

These works started as exercises while preparing for an art quilting workshop. Architectural and natural sources are the starting points, leading to abstractions with form and color.

The process led to an exploration of sewing, piecing, and construction techniques in an effort to best express my reactions to the essence of the inspiration images. Several pieces, however, are color studies in and of themselves, motivated by the need to examine the feeling of a particular color.

The works, writing, and teaching of Jean Wells, Rayna Gillman, Ruth B. McDowell, and Gwen Marston have guided me.
