Halifax textile artist Andrea Tsang Jackson of 3rd Story Workshop loves designing textiles that show N.S. in a modern way.
She collaborated with Seaforth, N.S. textile designer Alissa Kloet of Keephouse Studio to create the Land & Sea quilt. The “land” features traditional blocks, turned on point the way local quilters used to do. Free-motion quilting over a grid represents ocean currents. Kloet printed and dyed the fabrics by hand. The quilt was showcased recently at QuiltCon, an international quilting show in Savannah, Georgia.
