IQA Traditional Pieced Quilts 2014

I am a bit sideways in my life right now–as in I’m back home in the far north, but I am still on east coast time! As a way to transition back into civilian life, I’m going to spend some time sharing the quilts from the IQA exhibit.

I’d like to start with one of my favorite categories–the Traditional Pieced Quilt. Nothing makes me happier really than to see a beautiful pieces traditional quilt. It’s like seeing your Grandma I think. There is such perfection in this medium when it is done right. The number of pieces exhibited in this category was quite small. I am not sure what that is–where there few submissions? few quality works? or were the judges just crazy about digital imagery and pictorial quilts? I’m going to think that.

In no particular order, here are the quilts shown in the IQA Traditional Pieced category.

  3. Thanks so much for sending the photos of these quilts. I was blown away with the traditional ones with the contemporary flair to most of them. Especially the sensitivities/sensibilities of the ones from abroad. Quilting is truly an international art and craft. Hated to miss seeing you in Charlotte. So close yet so far away. Life sometimes gets in the way–man plans and God laughs! Carole
