Artists of the Month for January 2020 - Corrine Holden, Kantha Quilts

Corrine Holden always had artistic threads running through her life, from paper dolls as a child leading to a love of collage, to an active pursuit of sewing her own as well as others’ clothes and various uses of fabric in her art today. Lately “slow stitching” has re-emerged as an area of interest that began years ago in embroidery, crewel work, and cross stitch. She lives in Ocean Shores with her husband and two canine companions.

Currently her area of fascination is Kantha quilt scraps, which originate in Bangladesh and the eastern states of India. These quilts are made from layer upon layer of old saris and other cloth scraps and they are stitched together to create light-weight throws and blankets. The colors are very vivid and often have different designs on each side. All her materials have been repurposed, sometimes multiple times.
