Relics - Quilt of the Week

 
"Relics," 10" x 13", handmade by Pam Geisel, 2020

I made this piece in honor of a friend who was interested in found objects and repurposing them in art. The fabric and embellishments were hers, including the "sequin waste" that has been couched to the front of the quilt.


An unintended consequence of this title is that every time I read it, I get the lyrics to Bob Seger's "Old Time Rock-n-Roll" in my head: 

Call me a relic, call me what you will.
Say I'm old fashioned, say I'm over the hill. 
Today's music ain't got the same soul, 
I like that old time rock-n-roll.

Because this is the Quilt of the Week, it is 10% off the original price of $90 through 10/31/21 if you purchase directly from me. Details can be found here.

Fun with Cats & Dogs on quilted post cards and artist trading cards


I had extra fabric from the cat and dog wine glass coasters I made recently so I made quilted post cards. I love the cats helping with the laundry, and I see that they are about as helpful as my cat is when doing chores. Postcards are 4" x 6" and are $10 each at Village Artisans in Yellow Springs or contact me.

I also made some artist trading cards, which are basically mini post cards only you can't mail them without an envelope because they are too small. Artist trading cards are 2.5" x 3.5" and are $5 each at Village Artisans in Yellow Springs or contact me.

Be a Spark - Quilt of the Week

 

"Be a Spark," 37" x 40", handmade by Pam Geisel, 2020

I wish you could see this in person, it has so much depth and sparkle, it truly does glow. 


There is a history of artists creating socio-political art to help the public understand particular social or political issues, and quilters have also participated in creating Protest Art.


If you want to see photos of this quilt as it was being created, click here.


This piece was included in ART and SOCIAL JUSTICE: Art for the People, By the People II, National Juried Competition, Ellington-White Contemporary Gallery, in Fayetteville, NC earlier this year.

Because this is the Quilt of the Week, it is 10% off the original price of $4000 (with 25% going to charity) through 10/17/21 if you purchase directly from me. Details can be found here.

(Because of technical issues with social media, this Quilt of the Week is being held over a second week.)
