Wilcox County

Fabric Artist

Leslie says of her own quilts that they “are modern and made with bright colors”.But, each quilt tells a story in both design and color that is inspired by a particular print fabric. Continuing the “modern” aspect of her creations, she buys most of her fabrics online, and then might not know what she will do with the fabric until sometime later. Her quilts take from two to four weeks to complete.

Fabric bowls are made of clothesline rope that is wrapped with quilt fabric scraps, shaped through a process of zigzag sewing the rounds together and wrapping them over and over again.A bowl, depending on size and print combinations, can take from 6 to 15 hours to make.She says that each bowl is almost a surprise when they are completed.

Over the last ten years, Leslie has tried many different mediums including knitting (mostly sweaters), and jewelry making using antique pendants as the focal point. Her quilting started from the admiration of the quilts of a good friend, and the inspiration and encouragement to sew by her mother-in-law, Lillian Zacchini.She says that when she isn’t sewing she is “thinking about and designing my next two projects”.

Leslie admitted that the most rewarding aspect of her work “is creating something special that will last for a long time”. She said she falls in love with each quilt and is excited that others might feel the same way.She hopes her work, especially her quilts, will be pleasing and inspirational for generations.
