Patt Blair is a wonderful artist and thread painter. Today, she has allowed us to share with you a few of her incredible thread painted quilts.
Salsa Con Libby (pictured above) was created when Patt participated in the Inspired by Libby (Lehman) project. Each artist was to reference some quilt by Libby Lehman and use it as inspiration. Patt chose the title of one of Libby’s quilts, Salsa con Lima, and created this quilt to reflect Libby. Thanks to the numerous contributors (both artists and buyers), this project earned about $73,000 for the fund! Patt owns one of Libby’s quilts and studies her threadwork to learn her satin stitch technique (which she incorporated in this quilt). Patt’s secret? Once finally done, she wanted to keep it, but it was meant for the cause so off it went.
