PALETTE OF JEANS (2004) – 73 1/2″ W x 73 1/2″ L, worn/recycled denim jeans

Designed, pieced and quilted by Betty Anne Guadalupe.

Artist Statement:

A fabric designer friend of mine brought me a basket of worn jeans and challenged me to make a quilt out of them. She laughed and said “go ahead Betty Anne – make a quilt out of this!”  I took her her challenge – all the the pockets were removed from the jeans and the fabric was read to sew with so I began creating a piece with my palette of jeans.

OHIO STAR (2016) – 18” W x 23” L, recycled silks and wools

Designed, pieced and quilted by Betty Anne Guadalupe.

Artist Statement:

When Tierney Davis Hogan asked if I wanted the block she was abandoning, I jumped at the chance to work with her earth tone color palette. I then carefully disassembled the original block and started work selecting fabrics from my stash. My objective was to use all of the pieces from the original block and work with intuition. With this in mind, I asked the fabric to be the guide, this is where it took me.

INTUITION (2016) – 14” W x 21″ L, recycled silk ties and recycled silk garments

Designed, pieced and quilted by Betty Anne Guadalupe.

Artist Statement:

I got my inspiration for this piece from Sherri Lynn Woods’ The Improv Handbook for Modern Quilters.

I used the guide she provided for floating squares:

– Limit the number of fabrics and the quantities
– Limit the size of your squares
– Define your patchwork process

After reading her instructions carefully, I decided to use the white fabric as the filler, adding rectangles as needed. When I work with my intuition, I find a quiet place within, which for me provides the answers to any question I may have. What was satisfying to me was working a limited amount of fabric while enjoying the puzzle of the piecing.

BUCK, BORDER & BEYOND (2012)  –  26” W x 33” L, silk garment samples

Designed, pieced and quilted by Betty Anne Guadalupe

Artist Statement:

I made this quilt with leftover blocks from a quilt my friend Amber H. was piecing. I was working with her to help her complete her quilt when I saw what appeared to be a collection leftover blocks sitting at the end of the table. I started playing with the leftover blocks and Amber said: “Wait! Those are my favorite blocks!” Finally she relented and let me have them to complete a quilt I had started in the same color way. The buck featured in this quilt came afterwards: I was at my local quilt guild meeting and someone stood up waving a cut out buck, exclaiming”does anyone need a buck”? I reached up and grabbed the buck as I knew it was perfect for my little silk scrap quilt!

FRANK (2012) – 32″W  x 45″ L, collection of worn clothing

Designed, pieced and quilted by Betty Anne Guadalupe

Artist Statement:

This quilt is from the collection of a private family who commissioned me to create a quilt from their son Frank’s clothing. In the words of the parents: This beautiful quilt is a memorial to our son who died in a snowboarding accident in December 1999. The quilt is made by Betty Anne Guadalupe from his favorite clothes: his t-shirts, pants, shorts and other small items. Betty Ann was able to design and arrange the pieces into a finished product that very much reflects Frank’s character and persona.   Betty Ann actually made 2 other memorial quilts, one for his brother and one for his sister. “Frank” is the final quilt she made for his mother and father. Each quilt she made is holds the wonderful memories of our son. They are a treasure to our family and an amazing tribute to our son, Frank.

PAGODA (2014) – 20″ W x 22″ L,  silk garment samples, cotton

Designed, pieced and hand-quilted by Betty Anne Guadalupe

Artist Statement:

I was watching Antiques Roadshow and there was a quilt on the show that had blocks like the steps on a pagoda. It was an antique quilt honoring the Masons. Inspired, I immediately jumped up and started piecing this quilt. Seeing the antique quilt made me want to create a piece with a Japanese pagoda at the top of steps leading to light of the sun.

COLOR STUDY I: FLYING TRIANGLES (2012)  – 45 ” W x 44.5″ L, silk & linen garment scraps pieced on muslin

Designed and pieced by Tierney Davis Hogan; Quilted by Betty Anne Guadalupe

Artist’s Statement: 

Inspired by Jean Hunt’s “Aurora” in Quick Colorful Quilts, edited by Rosemary Wilkinson (2003), I pieced linen and silk sample scraps onto a muslin foundation as an experiment. I was not sure where the piece was headed and then it suddenly came together. While designing this quilt I was overwhelmed with all the possible beautiful color combinations – at times my mind was working faster than my hands could put combinations together!

COLOR STUDY II: SILK LANDSCAPE (2012) – 36″ W x 23″ L, silk and linen garment samples

Designed and pieced by Tierney Davis Hogan; Quilted by Betty Anne Guadalupe

Artist Statement:

This quilt began as an experiment – piecing strips of silk and linen garment samples and scraps in the same color family; then slicing them into strips. I was not sure where this quilt was heading and I started to abandon it several times. Finally, it came together as I decided to insert strips of copper colored raw silk (purchased second hand from a thrift store) to break up the panels I had created.

COLOR STUDY III: RANDOM NOT SO RANDOM (2012)  – 24″ W X 33″ L , linen and silk garment samples

Designed and pieced by Tierney Davis Hogan; Quilted by Betty Anne Guadalupe

Artist Statement:

A pure experiment in assembling random pieces, which became less random as the quilt progressed. The center piece came out of assembling, cutting and re-assembling strips of silk and linen garment samples and scraps in various combinations. The inserted slivers of color were an afterthought and helped provide additional interest to the piece.

COLOR CHANGE (2012) –  53″ W x 73″ L, linen and silk

Designed and pieced by Tierney Davis Hogan; Quilted by Betty Anne Guadalupe

Artist Statement:

I had been working in fairly bright and bold palette of silk and linen garment samples and scraps for the “Color Study” series. While over Betty Anne’s house I noticed a pile of brown silks she had put aside for project. Her pile of brown silk and linen remnants inspired me to create a piece in dark deep colors with brown as the focal color.

HE DRESSES UP, HE DRESSES DOWN (2014) – 48″ L x 27″ W, recycled jeans, wool blanket & menswear wool suiting scraps

Designed and pieced by Tierney Davis Hogan; Quilted by Betty Anne Guadalupe

 Artist Statement:

Inspired by the quilts from old denim blue jeans that Betty Anne Guadalupe was working on, I wanted to create a denim scrap quilt which mixed denim with wool. Using Pendleton blanket scraps and mens suiting wool scraps that had been donated, I created a quilt to represent the duality of the way a man can dress – “dressing up” for the office and business world and “dressing down” for casual comfort when not working.

ARCHAEOLOGICIAL DIG: THE VESSEL (2015) – 33″ L x 26 1/2″ W, recycled silk garment scraps, specially dyed cotton fabric

Designed and pieced by Tierney Davis Hogan; Quilted by Betty Anne Guadalupe

 Artist Statement:

In this collaborative piece, I (Tierney Davis Hogan) wanted to create an art quilt that represents the human experience as interconnected but solitary vessels moving through time and place. I pieced recycled silks to float in a tonal variegated cotton background. Betty Anne Guadalupe quilted this piece to elicit the feel of something old, discovered deep in the earth, as during an archeological dig. The iridescence in the piece reflect the light that shines within each of us, growing brighter as we share our collective experiences.

ABANDONED WATER STRUCTURE (2015) – 40″ L x 18″ W, recycled silk garment scraps, specially dyed cotton fabric

Designed and pieced by Tierney Davis Hogan; Quilted by Betty Anne Guadalupe

Artist Statement:

An abandoned power plant along a river in Oregon and the austere decay of the weather worn structure inspired this collaborative piece. It  inspired my piecing of recycled silk garment sample scraps into a gray tonal variegated cotton background; and inspired the quilting by Betty Anne Guadalupe, intuitively based on the actual photograph of the decaying structure and the water flowing around it. As technological progress is made and people migrate to urban areas, there is beauty to be found in the historical weather worn abandoned structures left behind.

ROSE AND BEE (2012) – 42″ L x  41″ W, recycled silk and wool

Designed, pieced and pantograph design by Susan G. Cobb;  Hand-Quilted by Susan G. Cobb; Machine Quilted by Betty Anne Guadalupe

Artist Statement: I picked up a collection of black and tan silks for a dark background upon which Betty Anne Guadalupe could show off her fabulous quilting dance. The piecing is therefore intentionally a simple arrangement of rectangles and squares. Once the top was near completion, it seemed a rose upon its surface would contrast with the angularity of the piecing. I talked to Betty Anne and she liked the idea, but wondered how the rose would be drawn onto the top as a quilting guide. We determined an original pantograph would work. I designed an original pantograph on freezer paper while Betty Anne translated into a long arm machine quilting design. I added hand-quilting, too, for a finishing touch.
