The magic behind Marilyn Belford’s “Mythical Quilts”

Artist Marilyn Belford talks to visitors and media about her exhibit "Mythical Quilts" at The National Quilt Museum.

Marilyn Belford is an award-winning quilter, well known for her realistic fabric portraits and art quilts. In talking about her portrait quilts, Marilyn says, “A face expresses much emotion. It can tell a complete story in a single viewing. I try to stitch a personality rather than just a face. It is in the details that the emotions rest. I try to give my students the technical background to enable them to produce a portrait in fabric that makes their loved ones seem to breathe.”
