A Way with Words: Magazine Pages Revisited

Gossip Birds by Margarita Korioth

About this Quilt

Designed By : Margarita Korioth

“The printed page has so much potential. The different letter fonts and colorful pictures are excellent design elements. When you cut all these up, rearrange and paste them together again, an interesting layer of text and texture is created that attracts the viewers’ attention when it’s part of a quilt composition.” – Margarita Korioth
