Part Two: Textural Rhythms: Constructing the Jazz Tradition - Contemporary African American Quilts

Love the Jazz cafe in the bottom of the picture.
Lots of beautiful stitching too.

This quilt has lots of fabric transfers. The images of the people were printed on a chemically treated fabric that bonds the ink jet ink with fabric.

Lots of images in this art piece.

This artist used the stitches on her sewing machine to create wonderful texture and depth to her art piece. Looking at the stitches, these are signature Bernina stitches!!

This beautiful abstract is embellished with hand stitching and beaded elements.

An exquisitely painted face. Be sure to enlarge the picture to see the detail.

Another quality piece. Beautiful choice of fabrics, stitches and colors. The Riverman is a perfect union of all.

Ms Campbell showed us a southern funeral procession. A jubilant journey to the forever after.

Handpainted fabrics, beautiful piecing and adventuresome stitching. Stunning.

The elements of this quilt are machine embroidered. A very innovative piece.

Another prize winner in my humble opinion. Each piece is beautifully carried out. The stitching does not interfere with the art piece. It enhances it.
A beautiful rendition of a face done with fabrics.
Congratulations Ms Crump. I almost heard the notes coming out of the instruments.

Be sure to run by the Museum at Texas Tech by March 21st to see these beautiful pieces for yourself. It will be time well spent.
