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 Dictionary.com

  • “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.

About spaceandtimecreativity

I have embarked on a Certificate Course at Distant Stitch, this is exciting as many years ago when I began to find my artistic voice I studied under Jean Lange in Adelaide, South Australia.Jean taught me that anything was possible (well almost) in stitch. Over the years I have done traditional embroidery, moved into other mediums such as quilting (Art Quilts), beading and many other related crafts. My reason for returning to embroidery is my love of stitch, I love the organic feel of stitches and how it adds another level to my Art Quilts, so I wish to explore how stitch can be used in design and finished work. I am now adding another course.....Sketchbook and I am hoping this will encourage me to keep sketchbooks for my Art Quilt projects.
