Quilter Extraordinaire

She said she had a lot of t-shirts. I told her I’m okay with that.

I’m used to lots of shirts. I have a well honed system for taking a huge pile of shirts and extracting the logos to condense them into a magnificent, functional, memorable quilt.

Still, she had more shirts than I have ever had presented to me on any previous occasion. I would venture to say representing a huge investment of time and money.

The result, a totally unique solution, one double-sided queen-size quilt for each of the four members of the family.

Pittsburgh-based fiber artist, Louise Silk, creates art that combines aesthetics and functionality with meaning and memories. From the influence of a 1972 MS Magazine article to the current SILKDENIM label, her quilt experiences culminate in a display of her particular capacity to use her patchwork skills to piece together just about anything into an aesthetic meaningful whole.
