Kim Edith: Textile Artwork

When I'm not running the Stitchbook Studio I work as a textile artist specialising in fabric collage. I have a range of original pieces, giclee prints and cards available through my Etsy shop. I also take commissions for mini art quilts (see below) and work on long term personal projects on various themes, 

Song and Book Quilt Commissions

These one-off pieces are personalised fabric art quilts based on your favourite song or book.  I create a unique illustration based on the song lyrics or book text and then create the artwork with fabric, embroidery and photo transfers.

The songs that work best are usually those with detailed lyrics or with a strong theme. Each piece is designed in collaboration with the client, to reflect their personal realtionship with the song or book.  See below for examples.

The quilts are a set price:  £240 for the quilt plus £50 for a bespoke box frame (if required) and they take 4-6 weeks to complete.
