Each year SAQA (Studio Art Quilt Associates) has a large exhibit at the International Quilt Festival. In 2023 it concentrated on the color RED!!!
This first on is simple but the quilting made it very effective……
The next quilt was made from dozens of hand-dyed cottons…..
….and the quilting adds so much dimension….
The title of this next quilt is the French word for “BURN” This quilt of hundreds of triangles looks like the flame on a propane heater…
This one has lots of shades and tints of reds……
I am a sucker for a good sunrise or sunset so this Artist’s Statement says it all to me……\
“A shimmering line of bright reds amidst a vast spectrum of blue and grey hand-dyed colors evokes the horizon at dawn or dusk.”
I really like the design of this red quilt…..
This next one is another commercially printed photo that has been beautifully quilted…..
This next quilt was made from hand-bleached black fabrics. I LOVE the colors that come forth when the black meets bleach!!
This was my absolutely favorite in this category!! It is another professionally printed photo although Carol used digital painting to simplify the photo before printing…..
These red quilts made a striking exhibit at the festival and I thoroughly enjoyed exploring them!!!
Tomorrow I take you thru the “Women’s Encyclopedia” exhibit…..be sure to be here!!
