Pauline Burbidge interview with School of Stitched Textiles

The Modern Quilt and Quilters

I’ve just been looking at some of Pauline Burbidge’s work – she has just put up a one person exhibition at the International Quilt Study Centre and Museum (IQSCM) in Nebraska, USA. It will run from the 14th October 2016 until 25th March 2017. Do let me know if you’re lucky enough to be visiting Nebraska at this time and need your bags carried, won’t you?

This is an artist I have admired for a long time – she has  been in the forefront of quilt making for many years now, but has continually broken new ground so that her designs are still very modern and unusual, having constantly evolved to keep them fresh and interesting.  Having a modern house myself, traditional quilts tend to look majorly out of place and I’m sure this is the case with many other people. So much so that I rarely feel inspired to make quilts now, except for sampling or presents, as I simply know they won’t look right in my modern (some may say stark!) environment.

So Pauline’s quilts give me hope that it is possible to quilt AND do it in a modern way that fits in with todays decor trends. I do hope they inspire a new, younger generation to do the same?
Do go to her facebook page to take a more in-depth look.
