Art Quilt by Studio Artist Dottie Gantt

"Me and Myself" copyright 1999 - Art Quilt by Dottie Gantt
Size 26" w X 31" h


Artist Comment/Statement: 

I'm a little bit of lace - sometimes I have bad hair days - my life isn't always black and white - sometimes life is colorful and fun if I let it - and I am always discovering multiple facets of myself. 

This piece and the piece "Myself and I" are companion wall hangings.

Techniques:  Pieced and free-motion quilted by machine, with embellishments of lace, fringe, "eyes" and buttons.  The face and lace collar were fused and then machine embroidered.  The fringe and buttons were stitched by machine, and the eyes were glued on.  The black-and-white checks were hand-painted using fabric/textile paint.

Fabrics used were Batiks, hand-dyed fabric by Lunn Fabrics, and commercial cottons.  Rayon, cotton and monofilament/nylon threads were used for the free-motion machine quilting and machine embroidery.  Embellishments of lace, buttons, fringe, and craft eyes.  Polyester batting was used.  Fabric/textile paint was also used.
