Handmade Textured Embellishments

Art quilt by Margarita Korioth showcasing textured embellishments

About this Quilt

Designed By : Margarita Korioth

“Because I create my own cloth with my own personal colors, it is difficult to find embellishments to match the fabric. That’s why I started experimenting with different materials to create my own. I usually start my work with plain white pieces of fabric and color them with dyes and paints—sometimes with a project in mind—and sometimes not. I like the freedom to put a mark on the cloth.” – Margarita Korioth
