So many remarkable quilts at the National Quilting Assoc exhibition this year…as in every year!
I start with this quilt since I’ll be in Venice in a few weeks and I find this amazing and a great representation of all that is Venice. The technique is so high quality and the composition so sophisticated!
This was an outstanding double award winner. I think it was painted after quilting…a new technique that looks wonderful. See each star is painted a little differently.
Here is a quilt that stopped us in our tracks! Large but all gold with beading, lots of stitching and so Art Deco.
Love the colors and pattern of this stunning mariner’s compass quilt below:
And here is Mark Sherman’s quilt that I’ve only seen in photos before this. Wonderful color and pattern, lots of stitching!
Ricky Tims had a quilt that was traditional patchwork but with some fabulous quilting when you got up close. I think he dyed these fabrics which were spectacular!
Love this stylized fantasy flower quilt. Sort of reminds me of some Jane Sassaman quilts. Lois must be a fan too because I can see some of Jane’s dots fabric in this quilt! Well deserved ribbons!
A favorite quilt because I love the colors and the black/white squares!
As a child we had big philodendron plants in my father’s restaurant and I hadn’t seen any for decades until I went to Hawaii. They were all over the islands and they call the plant “Monstera”. The holes are the interesting part of the giant leaves.
More next week. You should put this show on your calendar for next June!
