Thomas Knauer –– 

Explore language through quilting

How do letters, numbers, words, and sentences change when used on a quilt rather than a screen or piece of paper? Statement quilts are an emerging trend within the modern quilt movement. Quilt artist Thomas Knauer’s quilts follow the craftivism movement and emphasize social justice issues. From the most serious to whimsical, Quilt Out Loud teaches techniques for making text a part of the readers’ quilts. Each chapter focuses on a particular technique, such as raw-edge applique or piecing in Morse code, and explores its conceptual implications.

  • Craftivism is a rising trend where quilters are using text on quilts to make a statement and take part in social movements
  • Explore methods of effectively incorporating language and data on quilts, whether profound or playful
  • Learn how to use applique, quilted text, binary numbers, morse code, and more for self-expression
