Quilt Show Near and Far – Part II

Thank you for your responses and support! Here are some of my other photos from the quilt show.  Enjoy!

“Cuppa Tea” by Shena Riess

I am so impressed with the detail work and the fabric choices in this quilt.

This quilt was created by printing a photograph onto fabric and “thread painting” the areas of the duck.  From the label, I learned that this quilt uses the “trapunto effect” where extra padding is put into the quilt to create the additional puffy areas.

“Sassy” by Shannon Shirley

I had parakeets as a kid, so this quilt hit a soft spot for me.  The bird is a Quaker Parrot named “Sassy.” The embroidery in this quilt is amazing.

“Poppies on Parade” by Anne Yeo

This quilt was also made by a New Zealander. I really like the color palate of this quilt and the subject matter.  When you see the detail of the beadwork and embroidery on the poppies, you can get a sense for the visual impact of this quilt.

Just wait until you see this quilt up close. Unbelievable!
