Deborah Weir

by Allison Wilbur on July 28, 2019

Deborah Weir selected block #1 – which featured a large bird, perhaps a black capped crane, for her Sister Artists quilt. She emphasized some of the original lines of stitching, created needle lace leaves and found some “jungly” fabric on Spoonflower for the framing. Deborah has created pieces for the Solar Sister and Water is Life Quilt for Change exhibits and we are so appreciative that she is part of the Sister Artists project.

Deborah is a mixed media artist who primarily uses textiles in her work. Though contemporary in every sense, the work she does references traditional “women’s work,” slowly built up, mostly by hand, with a needle, using gentle materials – fabrics, thread, floss – in addition to more modern edgier ones such as Tyvek, metals and found objects. Her work is detailed, often with reflective surfaces and tiny, rich elements, and does not always neatly fit typical categories but includes collage and heavily worked or embroidered surfaces as well as art quilts and weaving.
