It’s All About Texture in Her Quilts: Meet Sue Rasmussen…plus a giveaway

Texture can be achieved in many forms and, in the art world, it often results from the way in which materials are used. Some quilters introduce embellishments such as beads, buttons, ribbons, or embroidery stitches to add that rich “I just want to touch it” look to their work. Adding visual texture through fabric and quilting designs requires a trained eye in making fabric choices and a creative and skilled hand with quilting stitches.

When we chose “texture” as the theme for this month’s posts, I thought of Sue Rasmussen and her stunning, award-winning work. She has mastered the art of combining fabric and machine quilting to give the visual texture to her work that causes many of us to ask “how did you do that?”
