Glass Quilts are created from fabric that has been stitched, embellished and treated to be used as an original model. The fabric quilt becomes the base for the plaster mold, and is often destroyed in the process. The resulting glass piece picks up the original hand of the fabric and details, including folds and depth created during quilting.
