....More quilts from the Festival of Quilts 2013. We are leaving the Traditional Quilts behind, and looking at Contemporary and Art quilts....
Here is Philippa Naylor's quilt, Tumbling Blocks. Hand dyed fabrics. Machine quilted on a domestic machine. Very complex piecing, including small 3D cubes which are pieced on to the quilt top and appear to be exploding from the quilt. This quilt rightly attracted a lot of attention!
Margaret Woodside of Larne, Northern Ireland, Agapanthus. Includes some fabric painting.
Double Wedding Ring, by Carole Wood and Kathy Lee, Northampton. Foundation pieced and longarm quilted. 2nd Two person quilt.
Jean Ball, Gravesend, I Love Fabric, 3rd Contemporary Quilts. Bonded lettering.Colours allowed to flow without prior planning. Bamboo wadding
Nina Lise Moen, Stavanger Norway, Whatever You Say I am. Painting with fibre technique worked layer upon layer. Judges Choice
Marian Hall, Welwyn Garden City, Lago Maggiore. Layering of dyes, quilting and embellishments. Judges Choice. Again, colours much better in real life!!
