Now, the quilts! Today I’ve included photos from Viewpoints 9, two of the SAQA exhibits: Wild Fabrications and Balancing Act, Modern quilts, and 3 quilts that are simply my favorites. I have seen several other posts by others with photos of amazing quilts that somehow I missed. You must know that my tour of the quilt floor was done in fits and spurts. I would start a category and get distracted with a conversation or the need to rush back to class, not realizing that I had missed part of the category.
But it was a great show! I am pressed for time so I am presenting them with just title and maker. Some of the stories and techniques behind the quilt are fascinating but I just don’t have the time to write it all out. Enjoy:

And these are three of my favorite quilts in the show, just because:
Oh I love this study of hands! Sandy wrote that she used to have beautiful hands and was in fact a hand model in her youth. This piece celebrates the beauty in hands that create.
I love this image. I guess it takes me back to growing up in Illinois when my family would drive down to my Aunt’s farm for Christmas. This would have been a pretty typical winter scene. There is an edited and quiet beauty to the prairie in winter.
I can’t tell you why I love this piece but I kept on coming back to it. It is peaceful and provocative, simple but intriguing. I’ll stop now.
I’ll be linking up tomorrow with Nina Marie’s Off the Wall Friday. I’ll have more quilts next week. I will probably have new favorites by then!
