Making Threads Count – SegoLaine

Hello again. The AQC also included a small show of the work of French textile artist SegoLaine Schweitzer. She focuses on repurposing wool to create decorative crazy quilts and panels.

Her work is a lovely mix of soft, subtle colours, complex layering of fabrics, appliqué and delicate embroidery. She has a real sensitivity to fabric and yarn and how to put these together to create an interplay of colour, narrative and texture.

Sharing some eye candy with you – first a crazy quilt:
