Prairie View

Pat Kroth

Hand-dyed and commercial fabrics, hand-cut, torn, collage. Machine stitched. Hiking on the Ice Age Trail has provided many hours of quiet, colorful inspiration.  

Fiber Optics

Hand-dyed and commercial fabrics. Improvisational composition, machine stitched. Fabric, thread, silk, plastic, spools of electrical wire and cableā€¦it’s all fiber to me.

Short Circuit

Pat Kroth

Hand-dyed and commercial fabric, improvisational composition, machine stitched. Working in a fairly improvisational manner, I cut or tear fabric, stitch and celebrate the energy of color and texture.

Source Material

Pat Kroth

Hand-dyed and commercial fabrics. Improvisational composition, machine stitched. I like to reclaim and repurpose cast-off materials. The inspiration for this piece came from my stash of tiny bits. Hence the title Source Material. The commercial upholstery backing pays homage to textile workers.

Downtime

Hand-dyed and commercial fabrics. Improvisational composition, machine stitched. Quiet time allows for creative sparks to percolate and ignite.
