Art Quilt Elements

I've already been twice and each time I've noticed new things. This is one of my favorites - a piece by Ilene Perlman whose studio I visited last winter during a local open studio tour. The folk art approach appeals to me as well as her incorporation of objects such as bottle caps and buttons. Part of her unique style is the way she couches some of these objects under the fabric as well as using them as surface embellishments.

I love this bunny. I would never have thought to cover up the buttons/lids - what a wonderful idea.

Fun! Wonder what it is like to sleep under a quilt of button lids.

I love to see items incorporated into art as well. She probably mounts this type of quilt on the wall.
