Today we are pleased to share with you a beautiful art by Kathy York! Kathy is a terrific quilt artist who enjoys allowing fabric to express life experiences. Her work is known for its bright, fresh colors and bold, crisp graphics as can be seen in her IQF Houston 2014 Honorable Mention, Suburbs.
Kathy started working on Suburbs in 2010. At that time a monstrous fire was raging in Texas, threatening and destroying many homes. Kathy’s inspiration came as she thought of rebuilding the communities on top of the charred black soil the fire left behind. Each home has a unique color and quilting design to represent the individuals in the community, but the form of the houses are identical to symbolize how they come together as a community.
We appreciate Kathy’s art and that she has allowed us to share her work with you today. Kathy’s quilting has won numerous awards including two first place awards at Houston International Quilt Show. She frequently contributes to Quilting Arts Magazine and has appeared in several quilting books. To view more of Kathy’s beautiful work, check out her blog: aquamoonartquilts.blogspot.com.
