If I remember correctly this one was Judges’ Choice.
The center motif was painted then thread painted. Doesn’t it look like a page in an old album? The quilting in the border was exquisite.
I admire representational art quilts, but I doubt I’ll ever make any. But who knows? Maybe it depends on what classes are offered at guild. Or on my seeing something that I just have to create.
Once again my photo program scrambled quilt and tag photos, and I don’t have enough hint of the quilt in the tag photos. So I have one tag and two photos, and I am not sure which the tag goes with. The tag says Gnome Forest by Barbara Triscari. I think it went with this one.
Then there is this unlabeled one.
I once drove a bug, but I don’t think that was essential to enjoy this one.
Another quilt that I didn’t get a label for–it was made by one of the two featured artists. If I had saved my program I’d at least have the quilter’s name, but alas . . .
I couldn’t get back far enough to get the whole. I’d say it was queen sized. And here it is with my friend’s finger to show how tiny the pieces.
No, she wasn’t touching the quilt. It was the first photo of the day and I forgot to turn the flash off. Here is another to show the hand quilting.
Hand quilting keeps getting more rare except for the occasional accent stitches.
And last, but not least, another densely quilted piece.
I wish I could tell you what that ribbon is! But I did get two shots of the quilting.
I really like quilting that becomes part of the design, as this does. I hope to learn to do this kind of quilting.
Till next year’s show . . .
