I’ve been slow; it is more tedious when the text and quilt are not together in my files. But here are a few more I have matched quilt to description. Starting with first place large quilt–pieced.
It is easy to see why this one got the award for piecing! And though it got second place for hand quilting, I neglected to get a detailed photo. Janis Pearson said she used 225 shades of turquoise/teal, overdying some to get the desired shade.
Here’s another with intricate piecing.
Can’t help but wonder why this one didn’t get a prize too–other than that there are more quilts than prizes. I am drawn to all those narrow points.
Here is one from the Rainbow Scrap Challenge.
The online challenge has been going for several years. Each month a color is assigned and quilters make up one or more blocks with scraps of that color. Some make a quilt of each color, others, like Sally Trude, combine them. There is a monthly linky party for people to show what they have accomplished. I might play once I sort my scraps. Sally created this block design herself.
The next quilt comes from a math instructor.
Irena Swanson sometimes tells how many pieces (964 here) and always how many seams (109 here–sometimes it is dramatically fewer). She has a website (here) and several YouTube videos instructing in her method. Here is a link to one of the videos, Half Square Triangles,Part I.
I entered Dreaming of Cool, Clear, Abundant Water in Art Quilts—Abstract and got a third place this year. (More were entered, so more competition.) Here are the first and second.
First place went to Anton Haas, Jr. for Polygon Paradise. I think the second place piece is Rain in the Glen by Evelyn Eason. (My photo of the description has no bit of quilt or mention of category to go by–if you know that I am right or wrong, please comment.)
And you have seen mine before, but here it is hanging straight.
Here is an impressive 3D effect.
Gail says it has 2277 triangle pieces! Here is a detail
The ribbon is for Kazumi Peterson’s long arm quilting.
This is only a sample of the 300+ quilts in the show–as you can see, it was a very good show.
