Art QuiltsOriginally, art quilts stem from traditional quilts. They are artistically more matured. Lately, textile artists as well are using quilts as a basis to achieve works of art. For its origin, arty quilts are often associated with craft. However, in concept, design and in practice, art quilters strive to make works of art, museum art preferably. The textile and the traditional textile techniques such as the choice of colors, the needle work and the embroidering, are the means of expression for the artists. Just like paintings and sculptures: the image is qualifying, with its impact on the beholder.
