Wise Craft Quilts Contributor Lisa Solomon
One of my favorite sections in Wise Craft Quilts, is the one about quilt labels. To me, this was a section that had to be included in the book- sewing a label on to the back of a quilt is such a huge part of the storytelling process. In the book are full sized labels in the book that can be printed out at home (I use these ink jet printable fabric sheets) and filled in. (A set of all five labels, ready to use, will be available in my shop later this week.)
While writing the book, I reached out to some of my favorite artists and asked them to design a quilt label. I was over the moon with what they sent back! Each label speaks to the style of the artist who made it, and interprets the idea of labelling a quilt in their own unique way. I’ll be posting interviews with each of these very inspiring women! Today I am bringing you an interview with one of my very favorite ladies, Lisa Solomon. I’m asking her a little about her work, inspiration, work space, and her thoughts on creating a label for Wise Craft Quilts.
Lisa has been exploring the number 1000 throughout her recent work. Detail of 1000 giant french knots, above.
