We are in the countdown to Christmas. I hope that you are getting
everything done for the big Day.
Here are some more photos from Houston and the International
I really liked these red runners.
It is interesting to see these quilts up close and personal. It helps me break down how the
quilt was made. This one looks like it was created using raw edge applique or collage. And I love
the stitching on this piece as well.
The shadows and the laces are fascinating to me.
The colors of this wallhanging made me want to take a closer look.
I can’t imagine making such a small log cabin. The blocks below
show how small they really are.
It was so much fun being able to look at these quilts so closely. The designers
stood in front of their quilt and you could ask them all kinds of questions about how
they made their quilt. I love being able to pick peoples’ brains.
This blue bird looked like it was painted onto the background fabric.
Suzan Engler created this digital piece. I sat beside her at the Winners’ Circle meal.
The top 8 winners sit on the podium and told their story about the quilt they
created and why. It was very interesting to hear each person tell their own unique story.
Look at all that gorgeous color!
Roxanne Nelson,a Canadian, won one of the three Judges’ Awards with this piece.
She also won at Quilt Canada last year with this piece as well. It is great when
Canadians win, we need to show the world that we can quilt too.
I hope you enjoyed the short show. There are more photos to come but I have
limited time right now to post. Have a great week!
One thought on “The Countdown to Christmas…”
Awesome, truly out of the box thinking went I to these quilts. I must make a trip to one of these shows for inspiration. Thanks for sharing your insights.
