About Jennifer Day
Jennifer Day has been creating "Thread Stories" since the beginning of 2010. In 2013, she was unanimously awarded juried JAM status with Studio Art Quilt Associates organization.
In the artist's own words, “I utilize free motion embroidery in my art quilts. I photograph a subject then print the image onto fabric. I then begin the process of covering the image in Thread Painting. My images have between 64 and 264 threads per subject. The process of blending the colors seamlessly together is quite exciting to me. I then will incorporate free motion quilting into the background of the piece, as well as appliqué, and many times trapunto, to create my photo quilts and portrait quilts. My quilts range between one and three million stitches in the finished art quilt. My style of Thread Painting is very intense and the projects may take between 50 and 150 hours to complete.”
