Sometimes a quilt just resonates with your soul. When you look at it you think….. “Wow….I love what they did there”!!
These are a few of my favorites from the Internation Quilt Festival….
These first two quilts make me want to move to Taiwan, specifically to Taoyuan City. These two amazing quilters are from there and obviously influence each other’s work…..
Personally, I just want to see these scenes, never mind actually making the quilt!!! AND, seeing the tiny slivers of fabric is giving me more ideas about how to add grasses to my stork background!!
This quilter is from the same area…..
I wonder if they had a workshop about how to use slivers of fabric effectively?? If so, they nailed the technique!!
All three of these quilts were covered with tulle before quilting.
This quilter is from a slightly different part of Taiwan….
These ladies obviously have a talent for pictorial quilts!!!
This quilt was very striking…..
It was simple in design, but the pieced background made it stunning!!
Here is a shot of the detail in the trees…..
In the humorous category…..
This quilt celebrates a quilting bee and the first time that they were able to get back together after the pandemic…
We have all smiled those same smiles when were could be together again!!!
This next quilt was just sweet…..
Although a closer look shows her amazing use of commercial fabrics!!
In the “It made me smile” category…..
In her description of the quilt, she even says that she wanted to make a quilt that makes people who see it feel good!! She certainly achieved that goal!!
This quilt was based on a painting and her goal was to create a quilt that maintained the impressionist style of the original painting…..DONE!!!
It is made from snippets….larger snippets….but still from thousands of pieces of fabric. It is not covered with Tulle but is heavily quilted.
These are just a few of my favorites…the ones that truly captured my imagination!!
I love to look at other people’s photos from a quilt show. Often I will say “Wow….I don’t remember that quilt”.
This is just another example of how we view the world thru our personal “Quilt Colored Glasses”!!
Thanks for joining me on this tour of IQF – 2021!! I can’t wait for next year!!
