There were so many outstanding quilts at PNQE 2016 that I’d like to share just a few more.
I have to start out with Keiko Ike’s American Spirit. This quilt has it all – the graphic drama of red and white, superbly pieced Mariner’s Compasses, and fabulous quilting. It was an award winner at World Quilt.
Here are some details so that you can see the wonderful quilting. I love that she combined classic feather designs with more playful elements like the flowers.
And now for a completely different type of feathers. This is Golden Peacock by Barbara Mellor.
This detail shot highlights the amazing feathers, but does not do them justice. They are mesmerizing in real life.
The color scheme of Eve Vallorani’s Wild Roses on a Eclectic Field is a time honored one. However, her fabric choices make it seem fresh and new.
The detailed stitching on the roses adds lovely texture to the piece.
There were many more inspiring quilts at the show, but I’ll say goodnight with this one, a detail shot of Gathered Consciousness by Cindy Watkins. I think Cindy did a masterful job of using prints in this dramatic portrait.
Did you go to the show? What were your favorite quilts?
