Sarah Hibbert, featured on Quiltfolk’s first Virtual Show-and-Tell, has published (just this month!) the first craft book of its kind, combining the disciplines of paper collage and quilting. Inside, you’ll find 18 projects for both collage and quilting; the book even includes the paper materials needed to complete one of the projects. Sarah’s work is incredibly artistic, and soon, you’ll be able to execute one-of-a-kind designs at home.
Sarah is a modern quilter influenced as much by art and architecture as quilting heritage. Often starting with traditional quilt blocks and giving them an improvisational twist – Sarah’s use of textural fabric, hand stitching, natural, rich tones and clever, but limited use of prints has seen her work shown internationally as well as being acquired for both public and private collections. Recently, Sarah has challenged herself to create small paper collages within a limited time-frame. Selecting from these simple pieces, Sarah scales the design to construct quilts that retain the spontaneity of the originals while showcasing her characteristic quilting style.
With the increase in home craft popularity as a result of covid-19, these projects will provide an opportunity for personal growth and support while waiting for the vaccine and the world to recover.
Sarah takes her inspiration for every day objects around her and often makes use of readily available materials to recycle in her paper collages which she then uses as inspiration for her quilts.
