I still fall in love with beautiful quilting on a fairly simple background. Here are four outstanding quilts from the World Quilt pieces exhibited at PNQE 2017. (I apologize that some of the full shots are not perfect; sometimes it’s difficult to get a great photo at a show. That said, I really was most interested in the phenomenal details of each of these lovely pieces.)
Copper Connections by Lynda Jackson of the United Kingdom. One word: swooning!
The Night Parliament by Joe Bennison of the United Kingdom. So many fine quilting motifs. The extra weight of stitching multiple times around the owls adds just the right amount of emphasis to them.
Juno by Sandy Chandler of the United Kingdom. Classic, elegant, and very large!
And last, but most certainly not least, North Country Girl by Karen Terrens of Australia. I’m completely smitten with this quilt. It’s perhaps my favorite strippy style quilt of all time.
It’s certainly true that the quilting makes these quilts!
