Quilting Inspiration: Chocolate Making and Children’s Literature

Dominique Ehrmann: Once Upon a Quilt exhibition, found in the Hat and Fragrance Textile Gallery at Shelburne Museum, displays Ehrmann’s beautiful quilts that are nothing short of outstanding. Their unique sculptural appeal draws viewers into the elaborate design and intricate stitching. Each piece contains its own story, provokes playfulness, and a need to learn more about her unique techniques.

shelburne-farms-2016-0602-032Inspired by children’s literature and her love for nature, Ehrmann and her solar-powered sewing machine create these spectacular sculptures. Although Ehrmann is fairly new in the world of textile arts, she was previously a chocolate and events cake designer and maker, a field she derives much of her inspiration from. Her piece Come Follow Me, took over 1,000 hours to complete, and approximately two years.


Learn more about quilter Dominique Ehrmann’s processes and techniques for turning her artistic vision into reality, during a personal, passionate and humorous slide presentation and gallery tour this Wednesday June 22nd, from 1:00 pm – 4:00pm, starting in the Pizzagalli Center for Art and Education.
