Spring Quilt Festival -- Chicago IL (Part 3)

And still more wonderful quilts....

"Spinning into Spring" by Judith Woodworth, Gerina NE is painted with colored pencils and longarm quilted. Her original design is inspired by Irena Bluhm's book and Renae Haddadin's DVD.

I am seeing more pencil painting and think it is a really interesting addition to the quilting world.

"Spring Revival" by Deborah Kimball, Baie D'Urfe, Quebec, Canada, is hand appliqued and hand quilted with embroidery, sewn beads and a pieced sawtooth border. The workmanship is exquisite and it is made of 100% silk.

"Spring Burning" by Ruth Powers, Carbondale KS is machine pieced and free motion machine quilted on a non-stitch-regulated Bernina machine.

The close-up shows the extensive hand beading.

"View to a Distance" by Ita Ziv, Pardes Hana, Israel; fused scrim and folded fabrics, machine pieced and quilted. This piece took Third Place - Art - Abstract, Small.

Inspiration was a picture taken from the Hubble Space Telescope.

"Three Color Study" by Alice Heckman, Kearney NE; fabric was hand dyed using a color wheel technique and three primary color dyes. Her design source was stated as French Braid Quilt.

I'm fascinated with these quilts; one of my recent purchases was Jane Hardy Miller's French Braid Obsession, which is a sequal to her best selling French Braid Quilts. Have the fabric all laid out, but it's far down on the To Be Made list....

"Crossing Over" by Cookie Warner, Fort Collins CO is machine quilted, fused and machine appliqued.

This quilt received an award: First Place, Art - Naturescape.

"Firestorm" by Carol Ann Sinnreich, Lawton OK is free motion embroidered, machine quilted, hand and machine appliqued. Third Place, Art - Naturescapes
And, again, more to follow.....
