I didn’t post last week because I was at a retired teachers House of Delegates meeting so I thought I would finish up our trip to the quilt show this week. As I mentioned in previous posts, the quilts at this show were more artsy than traditional.
This example shows what I mean. I thought it was an interesting way to use color in the quilt.
The slight shading difference in the background fabric makes this quilt look like it is 3-D.
However, when viewed straight on yo can see that it is in fact flat.
I like the big pieces of this flower. Although not bright, the fall colors are perfect for this time of year.
Some say the show has gone to the dogs. I guess in a manner of speaking it has.
Some people claim they spotted Elvis at the show.
And not just one time.
The use of fabric in this quilt just makes it shimmer.
This one hurts the eyes. Imaging cutting all of these tiny pieces and then putting them back together to make this pattern.
Someone has an artistic eye to get the shading just right for this illusion.
When you are fishing to find your favorite quilt at a show it is difficult.
I can’t pass up a cat quilt whether that cat is small or large.
To end this post I thought I would show at least one traditional pattern Grandmother’s Flower Garden.
