This weekend was the Quilters' Connection 34th annual quilt show.
Below are a few of my favorite quilts from the show.
|"Man and Nature"|
"Images from my photos, dover books, stamps. Paper, paint, thread on cotton fabric."
Gladys A. P.
|"Postcard from Mexico"|
"Based on a collage of photos taken during a trip to Mexico"
By Sandy G.
"Dye painted, arashi shibori, pieced, fused, raw edge applique, machine quilted"
By Diane F.
"A collaboration by Linda and Elaine for a show at the Falmouth Artist Guild. Hand dyed and shibori indigo cottons, indigo dyed wool roving. Machine pieced and machine and hand applique."
By Linda G. + Elaine H.
"Having fun with shapes, fusibles, threads and of course fabric!
Machine quilted with metallic threads and embellished with crystals."
By: Gail J. D.
"I was inspired to make a pineapple block to use my many stash strips.
As the quilt blocks got bigger, I thought the strips were multiplying in the bin.
I still have 1/2 a box of left over strips.
By: Linda R.
|"The Cave of Machpelah" |
"Abstract representation of the burial place of the patriarchs. Uses hand-dyed and commercial fabrics.
By Michele K.
|"Lotus Seed Pods"|
"Lotus seed pods look so prehistoric, almost a lien, how wonderful it would be if they were full of color."
By: Laima W.
"A study of reflection."
By: Rita A.
Here are my two pieces that I put into the show. This year I got a great space. It was in the main auditorium and the pieces were almost side by side. It was absolutely spectacular to see these two pieces side by side. My pieces did not sell, and neither did the Buin's nor Red Sox quilts. Only a few quilts were bought at the show. I had 73 wine bags, and I came home with 68 wine bags. How sad is that?
