Quilts Grow In Brooklyn

The Philadelphia Museum of Art Craft Show 
may have just ended. 
However, so much wonderful work can still
be viewed on the artists' websites.

Erin Wilson, a Brooklyn, NY artist, has cats, 
and makes wonderful quilted hangings.
Urban, lively, jazzy even, but not disturbing or noisy.
Abstract reflected images in each quilted square, 
or is it an interior scene? 
Curious, colorful and in town. 
Like visual clues to an as yet unrevealed mystery.
Wonderful color ways, clean opaque goache-like tints tones and shades. 
Erin builds the small squares individually. 
Careful choices from scraps of fabric.
Then assembles them into hangings. 
Unified by color and shapes. 
Some like hieroglyphics. 

To see much more, visit Erin Wilson's website:
