Traditional quilting is a humble art form, and many beautiful quilts started out as scraps. By transforming old linens through her use of dyes, Teri is following in this early recycling tradition. The resulting hand-dyed fabric is then torn, cut and stitched into her original designs. The finishing touch is machine quilting, meaning that the fabric is guided by hand under the needle to add details and dimension.
Many of Teri’s pieces include animals, flowers and trees. Her love of nature and belief in the dignity of animals is represented through simple silhouettes, surrounded by vibrant color combinations and appliqued flourishes. She also enjoys creating larger wall hangings that often feature basic geometric patterns that rely heavily on her use of color.
