Ron Leone: Men in Quilts
Being a tactile person, I find working with fabrics, battings and threads very satisfying. There are few things as sensuously tactile as working in fiber art. The different textures, colors and designs are very inspiring.
Also, though this may sound weird – I find the hum, motion and vibrations of a sewing machine very calming.
Over these many years, I have created many quilts and quilted items that make people happy, keep people warm and make their homes more beautiful – this make me (and them) very happy.
I find my inspiration in many places:
- Most times I get inspiration from places I’ve been or things I’ve seen. My love of nature, the beach and Italy often can be seen in my work.
- Sometimes I find a specific fabric or textile and create something around that fabric.
- I have even started designing my own fabric prints to use in my designs. I look forward to doing much more of this in the future.
The best part is the finished product is something wonderful that you can touch and not just see on a screen.
Many have also told me that my quilting is wonderful because it keeps me out of trouble…
