Hand Crafted British Columbia
Avis B. Caddell: Quilt maker and Fabric Artist
While I have tried other creative outlets, the tactile pleasure of working with fabric and manipulating it into original quilt designs is what I love most. I have moved away from producing purely decorative pieces and have begun to concentrate on using my quilts as a vehicle to explore and expose personal and social issues. I feel driven to try to influence the acceptance of this medium on an equal basis with other art forms and to encourage an appreciation of quilts for their beauty and sometimes profound messages all the while remembering and valuing their modest roots.
