Chronicle of Quilts - 2015

Take 3 minutes to view 38 quilts that took 1 year to make.

Each January I fashion a chronicle of quilts that reflects all the art I completed over the past year. I finished building this last night.

I continued 4 series over 2015. For the first time, I did not begin any new series. The majority of my time was spent on my H series.

I added a twist to my Lada series by using a black background and playing with a freeform style. This crop of 8 Lada Geos was really fun to make. The colored shapes dance against the black and create shapes in the negative space. A geometric web of stitching finishes each piece.

Last year I added 10 new pieces to my Organic Geometry series.There are some physics involved in this series, some forces are at play. The most pleasing discovery occurred for me while making the the Bergs, when I allowed the quilt lines to go through the shapes rather than be contained by them. Examine Bergs #2 and #3 to see what I mean. These lines add more movement to the compositions.The largest pieces in this series are Rising and Blue Veil (which can be seen here). This size is appealing to me. I feel as though I could climb right inside the structure like you would a piece of playground equipment.

Early in 2015  I stitched up 2 more Alinea pieces.

See all 16 Alinea pieces here.

Alinea #15 is the first Alinea piece to feature blue lines and shifting angled background shapes. Alinea #14 is the only other one with colored lines and they are grey. I tried another new idea with Alinea #16. I created one of the curves using stitched lines of thread instead of fabric.

I added 20 new pieces to my Glimpse series. Each piece is covered with tight rows of stitching that resemble an odd textured corduroy. In each Glimpse, the thin sliver of colors represents that part of ourselves that we choose to share with the outside world.

All of my art is easily hung. Each piece has a sleeve sewn onto the back and comes with a slat or rod that hangs with 2 nails. The smallest pieces have two rings stitched on the back, which also hangs on 2 nails.Email Kathleen to make a purchase:  kathleen.probst@gmail.com

It is fun to look back. Here are my last two chronicles:
