Sue Polansky’s masterful, pictoral quilt had a somber theme — the Pennsylvanian Amish schoolhouse shootings of October, 2006.
The close up begins to give you a feel for the number of fabric pieces involved as well as her skillful selection.
I liked the movement in Ryding’s quilt. The close up reveals beaded embellishments and a couple of the interesting prints — my photos do not do this quilt justice.
Beverly Fine’s horizontal piece, below, is a whole cloth quilt (with the exception of a strip of organza ribbon appliqued on). I don’t know how she obtained so much texture and depth with her surface treatment.
The next piece, by Christine Lacki, was needle felted and pieced, with couched fibers in the centers. It won Juror’s Choice at Quilts=Art=Quilts 2007.
I have a few more pictures to share. This week saw me finishing the collage panels for the After Prom Party and starting two quilt commissions.
I just found a flickr account with all of last year’s QC quilts depicted!! Here it is — Quilter’s Connection flickr.
Hey Dee, I know Margaret Ryding. She’s my acupuncturist & she has a few of her pieces hanging in her office. I didn’t know she was showing her work! That quilt is gorgeous. I wish I had kept my ears/eyes open about the quilt show – would have liked to see it. Thanks for providing the pics.
What a small world!
Next year, I’ll be sure to bring you to the show… it’s always worth the time!
