Creative quilter's site

Cathy Jeffers has a new web site. I love her colorful, creative quilts and fabric pieces. "Lexis at 13," shown here, is included in Chapter 2 of The New Creative Artist. I've always loved quilts. My mother and grandmother collaborated on many while I was growing up, following traditional patterns. In recent years quilters have elevated the once humble quilt to fine art with their original designs and exciting colors. And even earlier quilts are now getting the appreciation they deserve for the ways individual quiltmakers selected colors or altered patterns to express themselves. Google Art Quilts for links to the work of many talented contemporary quilters.
