BSL Art Quilts

Barbara Strobel Lardon is a textile artist who makes Art Quilts from her home studio. She majored in graphic design from the University of Wisconsin, Milwaukee. After working in the traditional style, she began to create original works of her designs using raw edged fusing technique and machine quilting them on Bernina Sewing Machine.

Her work is focused on nature, animals and wildlife which is due to the influence of her surroundings and life in the small town of Greenbush Wisconsin in the Kettle Moraine State Forest. Her quilts are like paintings created with fabric. Her art quilts published in two of the finest quilting magazines - Quilt featured her "Great Horned Owl" and Art Quilting Studio featured "Urban Sprawl". She welcomes commission work, if you have something in mind that you would like her to make for you can contact her through her website or find the work that is available for purchase on her online store.
