Challenge – Texture

Our Challenge for June/July was “Texture” a wonderful opportunity to explore the different ways texture can be incorporated into a quilt.

The following is a definition of texture when it refers to fine arts from

  • “the characteristic visual and tactile quality of the surface of a work of art resulting from the way in which the materials are used.”
  • the imitation of the tactile quality of represented objects.

The quilts that were created for this challenge show the diversity of inspiration and design. By clicking on the thumbnail you will be directed to the artists page where you can read their statement about their design.
