Instructor: Rosemary Burris
Instructor Bio: ROSEMARY BURRIS One of the things about quilting that has always intrigued me is the use of color in communicating shape, design and purpose. So, when I began creating quilt collages using hundreds of different pieces of fabric, the ability to create shape and dictate focus using hues, values and patterns took my work in a totally different direction than traditional quilting. I am consistently drawn to fabrics that create the illusions of texture, movement, relief, and contours with lines, dots and shine. I take in elements of the fabric while looking at the whole design. Finally, I quilt the finished mosaic with fine silk thread. Most of my work revolves around animals, particularly dogs. There is a soulfulness and a shared connection humans feel with dogs. Perhaps it?s because they?re so curious. After hiking in the Alps, I also fell in love with cows. I noticed how well they communicate without words, simply by expressions. I want to capture that in my work. So, I always begin with the eyes. The eyes render the image alive. The face and body evolve intuitively by careful blending of color and pattern. Each fabric piece adds a level of depth, much the way a painting comes to life through shape, shading and color. I hope that my quilt collages will instill a sense of wonder in what lives within an animal?s thoughts and connects to their souls
