Winners of the Rust-Tex Collection

Today I am posting the quilts of Tricia Coulson.
Producing and creating art is an essential element in Tricia's life. She is a textile artist with a genuine love of her medium. You can visit her website here:

Tricia used to create rusted found object sculptures, so rusting fabric seemed like a natural progression. She went to her collection of rusty items and tried different combinations. When she hit on circles and triangles she was inspired to enter The Rust-Tex Collection.

Row Houses won Tricia the best use of beads or beaded elements
in the beaded category for Lark's Quilt It Contest.
She works full time creatively and exhibits her work across the US.
