No Limits, No Boundaries

Tierney Davis Hogan and Betty Anne Guadalupe have decide to enlarge the scope of their collaboration. They have enjoyed focusing on art quilts with recycled garment making materials and recycled clothing, but they do not want their collaboration to be limited to just those mediums.

The Wardrobe Meets the Wall will be expanded into Art Quilts by Guadalupe & Hogan. 

Tierney and Betty Anne are working on a new website and blog on the squarespace platform. They were inspired by their fellow Studio Art Quilt Associates (SAQA) member, Kristin Shields, who has a wonderful website and blog on squarespace – kristinshieldart.com.

In addition to clothing (“wardrobe”) based art quilts, Betty Anne and Tierney are making art quilts using rescued and recycled blocks from other quilters; and art quilts from new materials such as quilt shop purchased fabrics!  (Recycled materials are wonderful to use but as quilters, they want to also keep supporting their wonderful small local quilt shops)

Art Quilts by Guadalupe & Hogan will imply a broader offering with no limits, no restrictions, and no boundaries on the materials they use to create their unique art quilts.

Betty Anne and Tierney embrace the concept of NO BOUNDARIES in their art quilting!

Stay tuned for more information and a link to their new website once developed. Eventually The Wardrobe Meets the Wall will be phased out.

Tierney will still keep her tierneycreates blog and Betty Anne will keep her Guadalupe Designs blog for her long-arm quilting business that will focus on examples of her customer quilts.

Never set limits, go after your dreams, don’t be afraid to push the boundaries. And laugh a lot – it’s good for you!

Collaboration

Recently Betty Anne Guadalupe and Tierney Davis Hogan were asked to provide the story of their collaboration.

Here is the story…

The work of Betty Anne Guadalupe and Tierney Davis Hogan is about collaboration across generations, backgrounds, and cultures. They each come from different perspectives and bring those perspectives into their collaborative work.

They randomly came together in Central Oregon completely by chance nearly 10 years ago and the universe kept mysteriously bringing Betty Anne and Tierney together until they became friends.

The birth of their first collaboration was for a show that they conceptualized: art quilts from recycled silk couture fabric samples. They then invited other art quilters to join in this challenge of creating art quilts from recycled silks and this became Quilting Meets Couture. This matured into Betty Anne and Tierney’s current collaborative collection, The Wardrobe Meets the Wall, collection of art quilts made from recycled garments and garment manufacturing samples.

Betty Anne and Tierney have been engaging in ongoing collaboration of art quilts projects. They frequently get together for “sew days”. They have exchanged blocks and fabrics from each others’ “stash”. They join together for supportive, collaborative discussions, followed by sharing of fabric, unfinished blocks and a meal.

Tierney and Betty Anne each work independently, but as good friends always do, they share ideas.
