(forgot to mention that these are favorites from the Long beach International Quilt Festival)
I'll start out with my most favorite! This is a big quilt -- probably 80 x 80. It's "My Double Wedding Ring" by Keiko Goke of Japan. I love that it's both traditional and modern, and the quilting is wonderful!
Here's a close-up of one bit -- she used a whole bunch of different fillers and doodles, and then added some feather-stitch for an extra treat.
Next up is "Concentricity" by Cheryl Lynch of Pennsylvania. Really interesting fabrics and graphics.
Here's a detail:
This one is "Roses - Sun and Shadow" by B. Lynn Tubbe of California. It is stunning in real life!
Here is "A Parliament of Owls" by Carol Goddu of Canada. I think she might have used something like Julie Hirota's "Art Glass Quilts" technique, but I'm not sure...
One more -- blogger is making me crazy again! This was one of the Hoffman Challenge quilts -- it's Asian Jade" by Kay Pennington of California. I love that she used the challenge fabric as bokchoy leaves -- they're perfect!
I wanted to add a few more, but blogger has decided not to let me, for some reason... hope you enjoyed the show!
