Artist Profile Series: Sue Bleiweiss

Sue Bleiweiss
Pepperell, MA

1. What is sitting on the edges of your work table? A roll of Mistyfuse, my Kai scissors and some black fabric.

2. If someone looked beneath the surface, what could be revealed that we might not know about you?  I’m a pretty straightforward person and I'm not sure they'd find anything that interesting or revealing beneath the surface.   If you know me then you know me.

3. What occupies the space between your sewing machine and your cutting table?  They're diagonally across from each other so there isn't anything between them but next to my sewing machine table I have a 3 tier organizer with supplies on it.

4. What is the most exquisite moment in your artistic life?  I guess it would have to be anytime I receive a "congratulations you quilt has been accepted" notice!

5. Do you have daily rituals in your studio? Not really.  Each day in the studio happens pretty organically depending on what I have going on.

6. Reflecting on the quilts that you have made, which one stands out to you?  This last one that I made “Color My World” is definitely my favorite among all the ones that I have made.  Probably because it is a reflection of where I am right now and a testament to how far I have come.

7. What do you have an affinity for in your work?  Whimsy!

8. What kinds of patterns do you use in your work to create interest and texture?  I think anyone looking at my work would say that the black lines are what takes my quilts from boring to interesting.  

9. What personal iconography is identifiable to you exclusively in your work?   Well I think its a combination of things but if I had to choose just one then I think it would be the black lines.

10. What was your inspiration for the Best of Dinner at Eight?  A box of crayons that fell on me when I was cleaning out the closet in my studio.
