Pat Durbin is an inspiring fiber artist. Since 2005 she’s been making quilts that resemble paintings. She is inspired by beautiful scenery or pictures (often taken by her husband). Pat uses quilting to express the joy she feels observing creation. Today we share a few of her beautiful quilts.
The last quilt above, Wild Rhodies, received 3rd place in the Art-Naturescapes category at the Houston International Quilt Festival last year. This beautiful quilt was thread painted using Rainbows and Nature Colors with Bottom Line in the bobbin. You can view more of Pat’s designs on her website here.
What’s your experience with thread painting? Have you ever made a quilt patterned after a photograph?
