Annelize Littlefair, United Kingdom, "Nostalgia"
"This quilting design was developed from a doodle whilst waiting in an airport lounge. I used silk for the front and back and added piping, piped beading and satin ribbon to the edge. I used Quilters Dream Blend batting, kimono silk and wonderful Invisafil threads."

This quilt below is precious. I love the title, "In the Garden of Nuts". She should have put a picture of me on it instead.

There is additional embellishment in the form of painting, embroidery and beading."

Marline Turner, South Africa, "Royal Doulton Delft or Wedgewood"

Detail of "Royal Doulton Delft or Wedgewood"
I love the use of solids and colors in the quilt below.

Susan Wessels, South Africa, "Flow"
"When assummetry is coupled with a symmetrical structure, energy is created. I have been exploring this in my work for a while and tried to push the complexity of the asymmetrical aspects in this particular piece."
These three quilts below are very interesting. They are quilts with heavy paint.

Roy Starke, South Africa, "Midnight"
"Hand and machine applique; hand and machine embroidered; reverse applique, fabric weaving, bonded, made braid for edging, cemented impasto, hand painted, machine quilted. The reproductive function of painting has lost its importance. We now use our intellectual ability as reference. The dominant concepts in the art quilt is the transformation of natural appearance. The corresponding reflection is what is produced by the 'human heart.' The quilt must have its own surface and depth."

Village Quilters Guild, South Africa, "That Blooming Mosaic"
"This is an original design interpreted in mosaic style and applique created from a selection of hand dyed and commercially printed 100% cotton fabrics. More than 40 women worked on this quilt."

Detail of "That Blooming Mosaic"
 I love the quilt below. The grays, oranges and blues make it a really stunning quilt.

Laetita C Cilliers, South Africa, "Fences 2 - Brazenly Violated"
"The second in a series reflecting on barbed wire fences in South Africa. A somber quilt with fences represented by curved lines set into hand dyed greys. Snippets of blue, machine pieced and walking foot quilted. The quilt was made in reaction to a disturbing event. My husband was stabbed when he caught a burglar by surprise in our kitchen in October 2016. We used bleu towels to cover the blood."

Detail of "Fences 2 - Brazenly Violated"
Katherine Jones, Australia, "Methylene Blue Mandalas"
"Inspired by cells on a microscope slide stained with Methylene Blue. Bias binding and needleturn applique, colored pencils and FMQ with threads from 60 wt to 16 wt were used to create this quilt. Can be hung in any orientation.

Cathy Jack Coupland, Australia, "To India with Love"
"Experimentation has led to my development of a machine made technique for traditional Indian Shisha embroidery. Both in-laws were born and grew up in India linking us with this amazing country. A silk scarf was used as the inspiration and background for this work. Various coloured silks lay behind each mirror and three machine embroidered applique pieces were added for extra punch."

Here is my quilt (actually hubby's), "I Love Love Love". This is exhibition is probably her "swan song" since this quilt was finished in 2015, and most quilt shows only allow a certain time frame.


This was a funny sight and sign.



That's All Folks!
