Customer Gems - Rachel Derstine
This week's inspiration is courtesy of Rachel Derstine. Rachel is a fiber artist and fiber art instructor. You can learn about her in-person and online classes on her website. This piece is the Fisher Fine Arts Library in Philadelphia. She used the Kashmir Gradient (similar to Marrakesh) and the Monterey Bay Gradient for the sky. You can see the gradient effect of Kashmir in the rounded parts of the building. You can read more about how this quilt was made on her website. She shared some additional detail photos below.
For sharing, Rachel received a 20% coupon for the shop that's good for 3 months! If you have made anything with my hand dyed fabric I hope you will consider sharing it in the Customer Gallery. The only rule is that projects have to be complete. It doesn't have to be made totally from hand dyed fabric, just include a recognizable amount.

Hope you had a good time at the quilt show Vicki, and maybe took some pictures you could share with us. I so enjoyed strolling through Rachel's website, and reading about her multi faceted life.

Beautiful. The windows make me want to look inside. And I want to lye on the grass and look up at the gorgeous sky.
