A little textile inspiration from my YouTube Textile Collection. Today it features the colourful & frugal, Improv Quilts of Christine Green.
Christine’s improv patchwork is inspired by the philosophy of the Gees Bend Quilters. Every scrap of salvaged cloth is used. She sources discarded cloth and preloved garments to make her colourful art quilts.
The garments are washed and cut up. Nothing is wasted. Christine uses shirt buttons, pockets, cuffs and plackets to make layers of interest in each piece of work.
Christine worked for the BBC as a Graphic Designer and now uses her love of colour and pattern to create her organic improv quilts.
