I fiiiinnnallllly got the real photos off of Mr. LB's phone so will really just treat you to some eye candy. As I said in the earlier post, the end of September I do believe, there were a lot of art pieces. I am a bit of an old fashioned gal. I like quilts to be quilts.
This one was absolutely gorgeous but was all fused rather than stitched. It was so beautiful; I was disappointed that it was 'glued' together. It may have been zig-zagged around the edges. I can't quite remember. Still so beautiful - those are 'me' colors.
This was beautiful - not quite my colors, but the the quilting was incredible.
Another beauty - I love the border.
More great quilting.
One of the art quilts - I like peacocks - this one was pretty neat. The tail feathers were 3D.
Farmer's Wife - it was done in blue and white which is a little different. There was a group of about a dozen ladies that all did them, but I liked this one. Just love the border.
More pretty quilting - the swirls were a nice contrast to the sharp points of the pattern. Notice the diamond on the right side. I didn't get a picture of the whole quilt though so you could see the masterpiece.
I like the repros anyway, but thought this was clever.
I think the lady who made this said that the blocks were supposed to be 8-9 inches, but she shrunk them down to a 4-5 inch block. Just sweet.
This pix is a little fuzzy, but this was really a work of art! I don't think I mentioned, there were A LOT of people there so trying to get pictures proved a bit challenging at times.
I saved this one for last. It was the quilt that most intrigued me. It was sewn and quilted then painted. I'm not entirely certain how I feel about painting a quilt. As I said earlier, I am a bit of a traditionalist, but this just seemed to move and flow. From the fantastic quilting job, to the color pallet, to the overall design, it just worked. Don't know that I will ever go there, but I do admire it.
Have any of you ever done this? I would love to hear about the technique.
Until Next Time,
