Part 2, here we go! Selections of quilts from Quilt 2017, put on by the San Francisco Quilt Guild. Enjoy!
Gwen Marston was the keynote speaker at this year’s QuiltCon West 2016 in Pasadena, and had a special exhibition GWEN MARSTON: Abstract Quilts in Solids. A trailblazer and well-known international teacher, speaker, author, she began quilting in the 70’s using traditional patterns, soon after to design all her own work.
I thoroughly enjoyed her keynote address AND her quilts. Here they are. Enjoy!
Here is the 2nd installment of the Modern: Mid-Centory Modern challenge at the Pacific International Quilt Festival. Selections from other categories coming up next!
Here are my final selections from the exhibits at Quilt Market Houston 2015.
The Plaid Portico is signing off for the holidays. Wish the best to you and yours.
Be back in 2016!
One more installment after this one of selected quilts from the exhibitions at Quilt Market Houston 2015. A wide variety of styles, I find them all either likable, interesting or intriguing.
Well, since we’ve already covered the Modern Quilt Guild’s exhibition at Quilt Market Houston 2015, here we have my picks from the rest of the exhibitions. There will be 2 more posts before we can cover them all, and these quilts span the spectrum. As usual you are subject to my curatorial eye which just means I take photos of ones that interest me for whatever reason.
We’ll backtrack after this to do some coverage of this year’s Pacific International Quilt Festival, as well as highlight some local quilt talent.
Next up we have the complete Modern Quilt Guild’s exhibition as part of the annual exhibitions at Quilt Market and Quilt Festival 2015 in Houston. No explanation needed, so enjoy!
Finally a moment to start to share the quilts from Quilt Market Houston’s exhibition 2015. I have the entire Modern Quilt Guild’s exhibition and selections from a multitude of others, but will start with selections (almost all the them) from Victoria Findlay Wolfe‘s wonderful special: Double Wedding Ring Quilts: Here Come the Brides! sponsored by Bridal extravaganza Show.
I imagine these are a few of at least related to the quilts in her book, Double Wedding Ring Quilts, Traditions Made Modern. Enjoy!
Yes, I am back from Quilt Market 2015 with a tons of pics. Most are of the exhibition, but before we get to those, I thought I would show you just a few shots of some of my favorite booths, mostly by some marvelous fabric designers.
In the next few weeks have several quilt exhibitions to cover so stay tuned…
Am off to Quilt Market tomorrow. Can’t wait to take in the exhibition and report back. Also have a line of tonals out right now. So I had some projects made for Quilt Market out of a simple doodle made into a fun print. It’s called “Improv”!
I decided to make a quick quilt, and did a spontaneous “stack and wack” technique ( I am told). Once I started doing it I figured it must be an actual thing. It was too logical. No fabric wasted, just cut fabric together and shuffle and sew the blocks. I did a very Improv look of course!
There is more to the story of the I Spy the Alphabet quilt pattern by Terri Carpenter of The Quilted Fox. We’ll show you in a bunch of projects later on!
I’ll be back after market! Ta ta for now!
