Day two at the quilt show brought a variety of different types of quilts to see. Some were definitely modern and artistic while others had a note of tradition to them even though they were not your traditional types of quilts. See what you think as you view these pictures.
Let’s start with one that looks like it could be a row-by-row quilt, at least to me. I like the diffrerent blocks that make up this quilt.
Here is one that is bold in its colors. The electric colors stand out against the black background.
These are all traditionsl patterns, but the colors give them a different twist.
Although I appreciate all of the work put into this quilt, it is too busy for me. No place for the eye to rest.
This I like. Even in this picture you can see the quilting designs.
To me, this has an optical illusion effect to it. It looks like the design is floating over the background.
Birds and flowers, two of my favorite things.
I’ve been to many zoos and wildlife preserves but never saw animals in these colors. I like them.
This is just pleasing to my eye. It acts like a bit of calm amid the other quilts.
Back to some abstract colorful quilts. Some tiny circles on this one.
This just looks time consuming.
I just think these two are cute.
The solid colors really show off the quilting.
Baltimore albums are always a hit at quilt shows.
Not really wild about this one, but I can’t say why.
Again, no place for the eye to rest. Too busy for my taste.
When I saw this, it reminded me of the bobbins of floss Kathy has for her cross stitch projects.
I am always fascinated by these kinds of 3-D effects.
Anyone for popping some bubbles?
To me, this just seems out of place with the other quilts in this collection. Maybe there is some explanation I am missing.
Baskets of flowers are pleasing to look at.
Well, that does it for this week’s tour of the quilt show. Kathy spent one more day at the show and next week we will look at pictures from her third and final day at Paducah. Until then, here’s looking at ya!
