Beth Frizzell has been using fabric as the medium for her artistic expression for over ten years. She has a strong sense of color and design. She is a self-taught fabric artist and her work is always fresh and unique. She specializes in the art quilt, but also makes long-lasting quilts for use as a wall hanging, table runner, bedcover or as framed art. Some of her designs were made by client request, though most are her creations, reflecting the technique or style she was exploring at the time of the piece.
Each item offered is a unique quality piece, handmade in a smoke-free environment. Each custom design begins with a hand drawn picture to work out color placement and design details. Once the 100% quality cotton has been selected and the fabric washed, it is cut and pieced following the custom design. Regarding her quilts, when the entire quilt top is completed, the custom quilting design is machine-stitched using a consistent stitch to create a beautiful long-lasting and durable piece. Her fabric art is either hand bound with an attached hanging sleeve or professionally framed.
Beth's work has been for sale in several shops in Houston and Austin, Texas, as well as art fairs around the state. She has had pieces in the Austin Area Quilt Show each year since 2004. Several of her pieces have been featured on DIY's show "Uncommon Threads". (click here for more). Most recently, her work was shown in the Texas Fiber Arts Museum exhibit at the Texas State Capital in May of 2007.Beth has recently released her new line of baby quilts under the name Sweet B. Quilts. She will also be making her art available in postcard form. These items will be available only in the Gift Shop.
Beth is not taking commission work at this time. She is planning to spend a couple of years pursuing her art. Please check back often to view her newest original items for sale. As always, you can find many one-of-a-kind quilts and wall hangings for sale on this site.
Below is a step-by-step of Beth's creativity at work. The item shown was one of the pieces featured on DIY's Uncommon Threads.
|Beth drew her design on freezer paper and determined the areas of contrast.||The freezer paper was then pressed to the layered fabric and secured.||Then she used a straight stitch to follow all design lines to stitch the fabric, batting and backing together.|
|She carefully clipped away specific areas of the design to reveal the dark purple beneath.||One complete section has been clipped away.||Once all the dark purple areas are revealed, she used a satin stitch of matching thread to go over all design lines. Then she bound the edges and added a hanging sleeve to complete this striking piece.|
