Selected Stories

Elizabeth Brandt's avatar Elizabeth Brandt

This piece is part of my Karma Series. Karma means "action" or "cause and effect." Everything we do, say, or even think leads to something else--for every cause, there's an effect. This describes the improvisational way I construct my quilts, without preliminary sketches or templates. As I add or remove each piece of fabric, it affects the other elements in unexpected ways. I slice, sew, cut and reconstruct until a composition evolves. The final piece can change drastically until the very last seam.
