Barbara Eisenstein A&M1

Inspiration for my quilts comes from the images in photos I have taken and images of nature.Barbara Eisenstein 6x7 72dpi

Seen through the lens of my imagination, I transfer them into fabric using raw-edge appliqué, enhanced by machine and hand stitching.

I collage, layer and blend elements of the design using commercial cottons, batiks, sheers and fabrics I hand dye or paint.

My work has dimensionality, detail and shading from ornamental stitching, applied yarns, beads and other embellishments.  I am not confined by the edges of my work.  Some of my quilts have elements that extend beyond the limits of the edge, as my vision dictates.
