What is a Quilt?

A Quilt is often viewed as a utilitarian household coverlet for a bed, consisting of multiple (two or more) layers.  The most common quilt construction consists of a top layer, a bottom layer, and a layer of padding in-between], joined together by stitching or tying of knots.

What is an Art Quilt? 

The Art Quilt is contemporary art for walls, not for beds.  Quilt National, a juried exhibition describes the technical distinctions that define the medium as "All work must possess the basic structural characteristics of a quilt. It must be predominantly fabric or 'fabric-like' material (to which other materials may be added) and must be composed of two distinct layers - a face layer (which may be pieced, appliqued, and/or painted), and a backing layer. The face and backing layer must be bound together by hand or machine-made functional quilting stitches or tied embellishments that pierce all layers and are distributed throughout the surface of the work."

CATAGORIES of ART QUILTS

Sometimes my artwork can fall into multiple categories.  When that happens, I put the piece into the category that best fits my vision.
