We had our Summer Reveal yesterday and there were many beautiful quilts presented.
Challenge - In the Trees
|"A Summer Night in the West" by Tracy Visher|
21.5" x 28.25"
|"Windsong in the Morning Mist" by Karle deProsse|
31" x 18"
|"High Above" by Patty Blesso|
17" x 23"
Challenge - Fractal or Fibonacci
|"Exploded Fibonacci Sequence" by Sophia Day|
34" x 21"
Artist Statement: The blocks are made using the Fibonacci Sequence. They are 1", 2", 3", 5" or 8". Rather than keeping them all together, I "exploded" them to get a more improv version with a lot of negative space. I used commercial fabric, warm & natural batting and Superior thread. The straight-line quilting was with a ruler. The rest was Free motion. I was very pleased and then I had a series of unfortunate events with fabric bleeding and then fabric bleaching. It's much less vivid now than originally, but I learned what not to do.
|"The Big Bang, Reimagined" by Kathryn Madison|
24" x 43"
Challenge - From a Fairy Tale
|"Blue Fairy" by Tracy Visher|
14" x 15"
Artist Statement: She is the blue fairy from the 1940's Disney's Pinnocchio animated movie. This quilt is made entirely from my
husband's worn-out denim jeans. Her wing tips are the edge of the pockets. Her
wand tip is the "button" from the pant's waistband. Her belt is from
beltloops. I added paint, beads and inktense pencil.
Challenge - Black & White & One Color
|"Intersections" by Julie Berry|
16" x 21"
