I love working with old photographs, and incorporate them with vintage fabric, lace, buttons and ephemera into quilties. I have a lot of photographs from albums I bought at an antique store a few years ago. Most of the photos are taken in the early 1900s. From clues I discovered in one of the albums, I have determined that it is from Carroll County Iowa. The people in these photographs look happy and full of life. Soon I will share some of the actual photographs, but today I am going to share little quilties that I made. They are 4" x 6" and are photographed on a blue denim background.
As a fabric collage artist, I enjoy working with vintage fabrics and mixed media elements to create art quilt collage pieces. Old fabrics, lace, buttons, sewing notions, ephemera and photographs are my favorite mediums to use.

I chose to name my creations Threads In Time by Pallas, not only to reflect the physical threads of the old textiles, but also to reflect the threads in time each piece travels in an imaginary journey. I added my name, Pallas, to personalize each piece that I create.
I live in Kentucky during the Summer and Fall and the rest of the year in California.
