I have been an artist/designer most of my life and have concentrated on art quilts lately. Being inspired by Deidre Scherer’s book “Work in Fabric and Thread” I decided to do a portrait, and asked my dear friend Irma Scholl (age 94) to pose for a photo to facilitate making this quilt. It is raw edge applique, cut and glued until it was layered, and then free-hand machine quilted through all layers. Fabric choices and thread create the painterly effect with very minimal inking.
