Quilts by Sharon Kilfoy

“Kilfoy’s quilts are dazzling displays of colors, patterns and textures, which reflect her ability to integrate fabrics collected from a wide variety of sources.”

“In addition to the cotton calico that is a favorite of many quilters, Kilfoy includes satin, velvet, brocade, tie-dyed and batik fabric in her work. Materials from fabric stores, antique stores, Indian and Pakistani sari shops, and second-hand clothing all go into the mix to become transformed into powerful visual statements.”

“Coming from a fine arts background, Kilfoy approaches quilting with an artist’s sensibility which is most apparent in her strength as a colorist. Her ability to compare and contrast groups of colors results in compositions of shimmering beauty.”
