Fabric books & other pieces

Prickly pear - Fabric book by Janine LeBlanc

I had no idea you were working on a website, Janine.  Great job!  Love the visuals, especially your fabric books!

Over the past few years, I’ve had the privilege of witnessing how some of Janine LeBlanc’s elegant pieces  evolve.  There are hidden stories in the imagery that she sometimes prints or dyes on silk, then adds the threads by hand or machine – quilting or embroidery.   Sometimes text is included, sometimes another clue is there to lead the viewer in.  I find that between the stitches and folds there’s not only mystery but a fine wit.

    small books are a lovely way of collating tiny samples as, unlike quilts [although also beautiful], each page focusses the eye on the treasure
