Studio Arts Quilts were hugely important in bringing attention to the work of non-traditional quilters.

1. Dashboard Saints: in memory of Saint Christopher (Who lost his
magnetism...)
Terrie Hancock Mangat
1985
99'' *124''
IQSC, 1997.007.1093, Ardis and Robert James Collection
Hand-appliquéd and machine-pieced cottons and cotton blends.
Techniques include reverse appliqué, embroidery, beadwork, and
color photocopying. Embellished with a variety of ornaments.
Hand-quilted by Sue Rule, Carlisle, Kentucky. Titled, signed and dated
in embroidery.

2. Spirals I
Pauline Burbidge
1985
88.5'' *87''
IQSC, 1997.007.1071, Ardis and Robert James Collection
Pieced and quilted by machine in cottons, some of which are hand-dyed.

This quilt and Spirals II, another in the same series, are based on spiral staircase images and compress a three-dimensional element into a two-dimensional plane.
