    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.

      now this is what I call Quilting!!! I love the non traditional approach bringing it to a high level of true art.
