Today we are showing all the quilts from the Appliqué category of the QuiltCon 2016 exhibition. Next up are the Youth quilts. A strong showing this year in this category. I like the variety. Enjoy!
The Plaid Portico is finally back and first off this year we will have long overdue coverage of the Pacific International Quilt Festival in Santa Clara, CA. We’ll start with a 1st installment of the Modern Quilt Competition, with this year’s theme of “Mid-Century Mod”. After that, there will be selections from the Wall category and the World Quilt Competition.
So excited to see the second installment of the Amish: The Modern Muse at the San Jose Museum of Quilts and Textiles. It did not disappoint! It struck me as quite dramatic as I entered the gallery room. The exhibition goes until March 1st so if you are in the area, head down there! There is nothing like seeing quilts in person, plus the larger exhibition of Antique Ohio Amish Quilts from the Darwin D. Bearley Collection is NOT to be missed.
