David Taylor- Amazing Artist

leave a comment »

I really only have to post pictures and you will understand my appreciation and fascination with this quilt artist.  If his works of art were paintings or drawings, I would be impressed, but they are made of fabric!  They are DEVINE.  I spent as much time as I could with David last week, hoping that some of his creativity would rub off on me.

I saw my first David Taylor in May of 2008.

This is Tinker:

This is COMPLETELY made out of fabric.  No painting at all. The threadwork on this, and all of David’s quilts, is done by machine and is spectacular.  

Here is a closeup of Tinker’s flower:

He does all his applique by hand.  I think there are 400 individual pine needles on this piece, which is 4 ft by 6 ft.

This is his most recent piece, Maynard, it is 7 ft by 5 ft.

Yep, it’s a bulldog’s butt!

One of  my favorite David Taylor quilts is called Marmalade . . . I’d call it Willie Dilly.

I heard David lecture at the Brandon Piecemakers and Feather Princess guilds, and took a class  from him.  All of his works start with a photo.  He is such a talent!

(I haven’t shown my work in a while because I’m quilting a Jane, and they take a lot of time.)
