Maggie Vanderweit's Black Dress Quilt - with the artifact from the WCMA Archives
Dianne Gibson selected a Woman's Petticoat from the Archives and fashioned this stunning piece using limbs from a fallen tree and paper/mixed media bits for the openwork "fabric" of her slip...
so delicate and you have to stand in front of this piece to appreciate all of the work!
Bethany Garner's Kimono Jacket with hand-woven fabric and lining created in a full week class with Betty Busby at Quilting by the Lake in August 2019.
The inspiration for her Jacket was a Woman's Hand Woven Long Coat from the WCMA Archives:
Bethany's 23" x 113" Wall Quilt is made with her hand-dyed cotton fabrics with inserts of the same painted silks used in the lining of the jacket.
Penny Beren's of Nova Scotia selected the dress above from the WCMA Archives and then created her hand-dyed and hand-stitched piece shown below, and now in the collection of Bethany Garner following the traveling exhibition re: FASHION.
AND SHE WALKED IN THE WOODS, Penny Berens 2019
