Quilts by Jan T

Many quilts by Jan T

Although I have participated in many, many group exhibitions and mounted three solo shows, lots of my quilts were not made to be exhibited — quilts for family and friends, commissioned quilts, and others made by me, and by my students, to give to charity.

Retired

Now a retired quiltmaker, I loved the process of starting with a photo, imagining a quilt design, and then producing in fabric what was in my head. I use the same process to paint pictures now.

Enjoy the quilts. Read about the inspirations that drew me to make them. Perhaps you might be inspired to mount a solo art/quilt exhibition yourself. VBG

Group versus Solo Quilt Shows

What's the difference?

  • Group quilt exhibitions are when quilt guilds (groups) hold a display of quilts as a group, quilts that have been produced by many of their members.
  • Solo quilt exhibitions are, as the name implies, exhibitions of quilts made by a single person.

I have participated in many group exhibitions in both local, interstate and overseas venues, and have mounted four solo exhibitions, the first at the launch of my first book — Designing Quilts is Fun in 1990.

Since that first one, I have produced three more solo exhibitions. My last solo quilt exhibition before I retired was an invited exhibition for a large craft expo in West Australia. 

Solo Exhibitions

One more "exhibition?"

I have had one other solo quilt exhibition, if you can call one quilt an exhibition.

Single quilt flies solo

Singer Sewing Machines Australia toured my commissioned quilt, I\'ve Always Been A Singer Fan, across China and Asia during Singer\'s 150th year celebrations. It was much admired, apparently.

Former quilt artist, now a painter having a great time creating art!
For more than thirty years, I have been teaching (make that enthusing) people about making quilts, and am now retired!

And now I make art every day!
