Stone + Bloom by Kelsey Boes, 2015

Juxtaposing a graphic and organic pop with crisp geometric piecing in her quilt Stone + Bloom, Kelsey explores layering through minimal forms. Screen printing over her finished quilt tops, Kelsey selectively masks and over-prints the image to present a modern puzzle of layers for the viewer to experience. The printed image is further enhanced through utilization of free-motion and straight-line quilting, which subtly highlights the nuanced layers and hand-printed fabrics throughout.
