Fabric Art by Jan Boas
Box 314, Whaletown BC
Jan's creations are borne from colors, textures, patterns or themes that catch her mind's eye. Jan's first love is quilts which vary from the whimsical compilation of a kindergartener's hand print or foot print, to the embellishment of another person's square in a round robin quilt, to the creation of the coexistence of the four elements: earth, wind, water and fire.
Jan's creations are not limited to quilts. She also "sculpts" fabrics into hats, shoes, wallets and linens (napkins, runners, tablecloths) for everyday and special occasions. She loves working with Batik fabric as well as the hand-dyed fabrics she creates.
