Visiting Paula Nedelstern's Kaleidoscope Quilts

Not having seen Angela in quite some time, we made a plan for me to come to her house and stay for a few days, as we live a couple hours away from each other. There's lots of chatting going on and there's thrifting, needlework and gallery hopping planned.

Yesterday was rainy so a perfect day to see Paula's quilts alive and in person.  Kaleidoscope quilts have never struck my fancy, but what a difference seeing them up close and personal. We both agreed that we would leave this technique to Paula as our minds couldn't quite get around the technical aspects of the process. Pictures do NOT do them justice. Whether in a book or taken by my phone...

It is amazing the little slivers of fabric she pieced together. Amazing. There is no other word. A selection of her quilts are being shown at Endicott College in Beverly Farms, MA. If you are in the area, I definitely recommend taking a look see.

  1. Beautiful, beautiful, beautiful. Like looking at stained glass windows. I've always admired those who can create such beauty from pieces of cloth. True artists "paint" in oh, so many ways. Thanks for sharing.
