|Su Butler: first Art Quilt “Where I’m Meant To Be?"|
Su Butler has been exploring quilting/art quilting for only 1.5 years, having spent the last 40 years focusing on handweaving and surface design. Her painter’s training in art school needed an outlet but her passion for working with fiber/cloth had not subsided and art quilts seemed to be the perfect vehicle for her emerging ideas. Su dyes her own fabrics and is eagerly learning everything she can about art quilting!
