SOLSC Day 27

Today I thought I would concentrate on pictorial quilts and animal quilts.  Even without the name, the images portrayed in each are easily identifiable.

Looks like these two are enjoying themselves.

I like the perspective in this quilt.

Nice view.

Sometimes shapes can be put together so that a picture emerges.

With three cats these are about the only kinds of vases I can display.

I must admit that with all of the quilt shows I have gone to I have never seen one like this.

Anyone want to join Gene Kelly?

Now let’s look at some animal quilts.  No two quilters will depict an elephant the same way as evidenced by these two quilts.

Can you see the fish these two are looking at?

Here’s a colorful fella.

These three look comfy.

Some birds on the wing.

If we look to the air we have to give equal time to the sea.

Ain’t that the truth!

To end today’s post you know that if there is a cat quilt I am going to take a picture of it.  So, here it is.  I just love the whimsy of this quilt.

  1. These are stunning. Do people hang these on walls or use them as actual quilts on beds? I ask because of the one called “The Elephant in the Guest Room”.

  2. I so wish I could have gone! So fabulous! Just love quilts! Thanks, Bob.

  3. Incredible! Thank you so much for sharing these photos. I think I love the Hwasung Fortress best because it’s so unusual. I’ve never seen a quilt quite like that before. Had to laugh at your comment about quilts on beds. I sleep under quilts–a couple of old family quilts meant for use, not beauty, and then a star quilt my students gave me when I left my high school teaching job–and they definitely take some abuse from the cats.

  4. Wow! It seems that every year the quilts get more amazing! This was such a wonderful way to start my day…with so much joy, skill and creativity in this world. Thank you so much for sharing your adventure with us.

  5. Some people are so clever with their titles, Picatso made me laugh. I really like the vases and the one before it, Elegance in Red. However, they are all amazing! What talent!

  6. Love Picatso! But agree with Elizabeth that Hwasung Fortress is very unusual. Autumn is so pretty – thinking of seasons! Quilts are ART! And tell so many stories as do your posts. I’m always fascinated by how you organize the show for US! ❤

    • Sometimes it is difficult to find some kind of commonality when I am trying to organize the pictures. I hope for some kind of organization, but it doesn’t always work. Still have lots more to share.

  7. These are amazing! Wow! It’s incredible to think that quilters can create these images!

  8. Those quilts are gorgeous! I like the cleverness of some of them, such as Glass Act, and Picatso. I think my favorite quilt is Glass Act, the one with the vases…. Look at all the hard work that had to have gone onto that one! 🙂 ~JudyK

  9. Wow these are truly stunning pieces of art….the colours and the detail are just amazing. Thank you for taking the time to share them… I think they should have put how many hours of craftsmanship each one took….!

  10. The quilts are amazing! I think I need to go to this show next year. Thanks so much for sharing.

  11. Works of art and lots of love. It’s amazing how all those little fabric pieces sewn together create beautiful quilts. Thanks for sharing with pictures and titles.

  12. These are so incredible! So different to the classic pieced quilts, and truly a work of art.

  13. Another wonderful tour of the quilt show – almost as good as being there. So many unusual, interesting quilts. Thanks for sharing once again Bob.

    Exquisite. I remember last year’s. Perhaps this year’s is even better. Thanks for sharing!!
