Pacific International Quilt Festival, Part 5, International, con’t

Well, I seem to have more photos of PIQF 2014 quilts than I imagined and can only process so many at a time, and rather than cheat you out of any I will just keep these posts coming until they are all done. We love to look at quilts, don’t we?

After that I have some cool projects and quilt designers to highlight and then we can go on to cover the Amish quilt shows art the San Jose Museum of Quilts and Textiles. The Antique Ohio Amish Quilts from the Darwin D. Bearley Collection will be on view from November 15th-March 1st 2015.  The Amish Muse, an exhibition that will exhibited along side it, is comprised Amish inspired modern quilts by Bay Area Modern Quilt Guilds. And yours truly actually has a quilt in it…..and yes of course I will be showing you that too!

Without further ado, here are more of the delicious quilts from the International section of the 2014 Pacific International Quilt Festival:

Pacific International Quilt Festival, Part 2

The next quilts we’ll cover as part of the Pacific International Quilt Festival exhibition are selections from the Traditional category. If you’re in to Modern don’t skip this as what is interesting is the modern overtones in many of the quilts. I am going to mix these up between the ones that seem a bit more modern and the amazing palettes, detailed quilting and phenomenal piecing workmanship of the more elaborate traditional quilts.

There were a lot more in this category in the show, these are merely ones that I gravitated to. Yes, I know, you are always at the mercy of my eye. Next up after this, in Part 3, we will do the Gee’s Bend Revisited portion of the exhibition.

Enjoy!

Pacific International Quilt Festival 2014 Part 1

Since I couldn’t make it to Quilt Market this fall, (packing up our kitchen in prep for a big renovation) I was glad to be able to cover the Pacific International Quilt festival at the Santa Clara Convention Center last weekend. It gave me my fix of looking at gorgeous quilts from around the world since I missed the exhibition at Quilt Market, which is absolutely my favorite part of market.

A bustling floor with booths of fabric, pattern, tools and all things sewing galore, the exhibition runs in and out through the whole space.  As usual, I go in and just look and shoot any quilt that looks interesting and appeals to me. We will have several posts as I took photos of almost 150 quilts so stay tuned!

The first set are selections from “4-Way Dialogue by ab-strakt-ed”, a retrospective of works created for a series of invitational, 4 person exhibits that were presented by this group over the past three years.  It features improvisationally pieced, abstract art quilts by Santa Barbara ab-strakt-ed artists Lou Ann Smith, Patty Six, Debra Blake, and Maren Johnson.

Margaret Glendening and MGmade

I met Margaret Glendening through the East Bay Modern quilt guild,  and am always enamored by the quilts that she brings in to show. Attention to detail, great color stories and fabric selection make her quilts stand out, along with how prolific she is.  So pleased with the quilt she made using Pop Rox and some Andover Fabrics textured solids, with a back as handsome as the front!

And because I’m such a fan, I’m also going to show you some shots of more of her quilts and don’t forget to check out her Etsy shop, MGmade especially if you want a well made affordable baby or lap quilt as a gift for someone!
