Laurie Swim, a Canadian treasure

Open-House-detail-Work-in-PYesterday’s METRO papers across the country ran an interview with renowned NS  quilt artist Laurie Swim on her unique career. “Odd Jobs” spoke to Laurie from her home in Blue Rocks, NS about the kind of art work she creates — masterful pieces, almost like paintings, all from scraps of fabric. Laurie has published a number of books, her most recent From Rags to Riches, and she is currently working on another huge commemorative quilt, this time on the 1906 Halifax Explosion. To read the interview, click here. Unfortunately, the article ran with an illustration of a generic patchwork quilt — nothing like the pieces Laurie creates — so, I’ve posted a sample of her work above.
