My name is Margaret Abramshe. I am a passionate art quilter living in beautiful Saint George Utah.
I begin the creative process excavating the hidden story behind an image. I use vintage family photographs, snapshots, camera phone pictures, and digital collages.
My process starts with a digital image. I use photo manipulation software to enhance or create a new composition. The digital file is sent to a commercial fabric printer. When the fabric arrives in my studio, I use a variety of materials including dyes, pigment sticks and paints directly on the cloth. As I quilt through the cloth, batting and backing; I am drawing with thread to create a rich and visually exciting work of art.
