COLOR! COLOR! COLOR!
There were some rich color stories at this year’s quilt fest. You needed sunglasses with some of these quilts.
My mother kept trying to find all of the figures in this quilt. I think she lost count at 20. I can’t get over how detailed and intricate this design is.
This won first place it its division. At first I thought it was rather simple, but the colors are so hypnotic, I quickly fell under its spell. The vertical stripes that fade from light to dark really help to contain the bold lines of color in the center.
This came all the way from Australia. The chartreuse is so striking on this tiny quilt! My friend Tasmin was excited it won because she is an Aussie herself and this winner will be teaching at her shop! Check out Tasmin’s shop: Berrima Patchwork.
EDIT: Look what I found! It was hidden in the tons of pics my mom and I took. This shows the fantastic workmanship.
This one spoke to me because of the extended lines on the roofs and windows. Illustrators do that a lot on fashion sketches and I really just felt for it. I normally don’t respond to cartoony images, but this one is the exception.
I wish I had a larger picture of this one. The shapes of the figures are a delight and the mix of colors blended very well together.
