Heidi Proffetty uses her original technique to create Mosaic Art Quilts using a digital cutter. Inspired by the photographs she takes, she renders the photo into a mosaic digital design. Then she carefully selects commercial batiks and hand-dyed fabrics to achieve the perfect combination of shading, contrast and interest. In the end, all of the small, intricate fabric pieces are precisely cut using a digital cutter, fused into place and free-motion stitched creating an art quilt that is filled with emotion and visually stunning.
