Art Gallery

I invite you to view some of my work on Flickr.

I  have articles published in Quilting Arts (Issue 33 and Issue 39), Fibre & Stitch (Issue 7: Sister Angels) and Workshop on the Web (Sep 2010).

My work is featured in Kelli Perkins bookStitch Alchemy: Combining Fabric & Paper for Mixed Media Art.

You can also see my work on or Carol Wiebe Wonders Out Loud.

Here’s an artist profile, with Cyndi Lavin.

Bonnie Samuel Designs writes:

Carol Wiebe’s work is different, intriguing. She works in a medium called “cracked paper quilts” – a creative process full of adaptations and applications.

Albedo, where Arlee Barr chronicles her concupiscentia oculorum (don’t we all view art with lustful eyes?) says:

Carol’s work with paper as a textile is soothing and spiritual. Her “cracked paper quilts” are a lesson in harmony and colour composition.

    Hi Carol,

    I really enjoyed your QA article. Thanks for the level of detail you included. I do have a few questions about your process. You refer to your support as a wood painting panel; are you using something like Masonite, thin plywood, or a regular stretched canvas? What do you like best? More importantly, you mentioned wrapping the piece around the support. How do you do your corners neatly? I cannot seem to manage them. Do you staple them to the back? Finally, do you a favorite brand of gloss medium for all the adhering? They do vary in their viscosity.

    Thanks very much,

    Debra Gash

    Hi Debra! The panels I am talking about look like this:

    I included it as a link with my article, but it wasn’t in the magazine (perhaps because it’s Canadian). These are very light, made of birch plywood, I believe. I love using them, for this application and for painting.

    I do my corners by just meeting them, no overlap. I fudge whatever doesn’t quite meet with acrylic medium and the appropriate color paint.

    My favorite medium of choice is Golden. I used a soft gel gloss medium. You should gesso the panel first, as the fabric then adheres better.

    Does that cover everything you wanted to know?
