Artist: Comma Workshop

Comma Workshop was started in 2010 by designer Kerry Larkin. In 2006, Kerry installed an art piece at the SAAW gallery in Philadelphia that explored fabric, typography, and storytelling. Wanting to explore this more, she went back to her roots and embraced quilting. From a family of quilt-makers, seamstresses, and upholsterers, Kerry is continuing the tradition with a fresh perspective.

The context quilt collection explores people, place, and narrative through the tradition of quilt-making. Each quilt in the series has a story quilted directly into it, in both white thread and a contrasting color thread. The reader is invited to gather snippets of the stories that can be both reflective and quirky.

Comma Workshop also carries a line of baby quilts and does custom quilts as well. All you have to do is pick a style, size, and color thread.  Find out more information here.
