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.
Heidi Proffetty is an award winning quilter and teacher known for her mosaic style of art quilts. In 2017 she won 2nd and 3rd place awards at International Quilt Festival in Houston. Her quilts have been juried into American Quilter’s Society, traveled with Cherrywood Fabric’s Challenge exhibits and exhibited in local galleries. She has been a featured guest artist on Quilting Arts TV and has been published in Oct/Nov 2017 Quilting Arts Magazine. In 2018 she made a guest appearance on The Quilt Show. The show #2406 is scheduled to air March 10, 2019. In 2019, she will continue to make mosaic style of art quilts to enter shows and she will offer lectures and workshops teaching her technique of creating mosaic art quilts using a digital cutter.
