QuiltCon 2016: Gwen Marston

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!

Quilt Market 2015 Houston–Selections from the Quilt Exhibition

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.

Happy Thanksgiving!

Double Wedding Ring Quilts by Victoria Findlay Wolfe, Quilt Market 2015 Exhibition

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!

Improv

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!
