Article in Quilting Arts magazine (Issue #44)

look for my article, "Silk-screen fabric with 
everyday objects" in the current issue of QA magazine!

I made an interesting discovery about a year ago when, in a deconstructed screen-printing workshop with Kerr Grabowski, I began using disposable facial washcloths under the screen.  The article in Quilting Arts discusses this process.  I'll be interested to know what you think about it, so please give me some feedback if you are a subscriber.

This construction is a combination of facial cloths and silk broadcloth,
the quilted piece is mounted onto a painted, gold-leafed, stretched canvas



  1. I was so excited to see the article when I opened the magazine! Looked terrific and was fun to be a "part" of seeing the whole thing come together!

  2. At the risk of sounding naive, where do you buy disposable facial cloths?

  3. I use Oil of Olay facial cloths for sensitive skin. They are impregnated with a mild, non-sudsing cleanser that doesn't irritate my very particular skin, removes makeup, and after washing, they are dyeable! I started out using them for travel, but now I use them every day and throw them into the wash with everything else. I buy mine in bulk at Costco but you can find them in any drugstore.

  4. The work above, described as "combination of facial cloths and silk broadcloth" is yours, right? It comes up in a Google search for Kerr Grabowski. But it's not hers, is it?

  5. Hi Kate,
    Sorry I'm so slow in responding to your query. Yes, it is my work. Thanks so much for stopping by!


I love to hear from my readers! Please drop me a line!
