QuiltCon2015- Appliqué Part II

I keep imagining that the lot of you are getting bored with the slo-mo version of the Modern Quilt Guild show in Austin, Texas last month.

But the numbers on my stats page say other wise.

I am going to write about something else here super shortly, but in the meantime, here is the conclusion of the Appliqué category at this year’s show.

    • Sue- I’m glad to hear that. I believe your work would fit right in there. It appears the modern quilters are much more open to expressing their feelings and political views in cloth which I find brave and inspiring. Thank you for stopping by!

  2. How do you pick a favorite? When I saw the one by Gabriela Kirst, I knew that was it. Took my breath away. These are all so vastly different from traditional applique and each could stand as an art object, on it’s own.
