One of my favorite exhibits at the International Quilt Festival is the “Celebration of Color” sponsored by eQuilter.
This year’s offerings were truly amazing. Here are a few of my favorites…..
First prize was awarded to Lou Ellen Hassold (quilted by Valerie Wagner)…..
She mixed Kaffe Fassett scraps and Moda Grunge fabrics, using a Judy Neimeyer design. The result seemed to glow!!
The “Best of Show” ribbon went to Caryl Bryer Fallert-Gentry……
I have ALWAYS loved her work and this is certainly the way that I would want to CELEBRATE!!!
I loved this quilt by Amy Kidd…..
….and especially the way that she incorporated striped fabrics…..
They gave a sparkle to the finished piece!!
This quilt by Claudia Clark Myers…..
…had so much dimension and movement!! She made it using variations on a “Wheel of Fortune” block.
“Mason Jar Bouquet” by Deana Steel…….
….satisfied my need for gorgeous flowers on a quilt. The butterfly was an added benefit!!
Karen Grace Fisher’s quilt…..
….is a great example of a Mathematical quilt. It contains 26 colors and the color and value changes move your eye across the quilt.
Finally, “Chroma Infinitum” by Susan McKinney……
….is a riotous explosion of color and I LOVE IT!!!!
Come back tomorrow for the Applique quilts…..one, in particular, will ASTOUND you….I promise!!!
