Close up of the Winning Miniature and Best In Show
This American Life by Susan Shie
Another nice day at the Festival of Quilts catching up with old friends and people I forgot to say hi to on Thursday I also needed to photograph them on their stands.
It was Steph and Jacky's first FOQ and their stand looked really lovely- Pretty soon they will be opening a shop. Up to now their business has been Internet based. So keep and eye on their web site for the new address and opening event at Cup Cake Cottons .
I also stopped by and said hello to Fiona and her mum on the The American Quilt Store . Fiona hates being photographed and would not look up even though I took 3 photo's.
When I photographed the winning quilt I don't think you could get any idea of the detail in it so am posting a close up - I had to ask some unsuspecting person to stick their hand next to some of the miniatures as it is hard to tell how small their really were. I was really impressed with the miniatures this year. One thing for sure is I don't think I will ever have the patience to make one plus the fact miniatures WOULD NOT make a dent in my fabric stash. LOL
Not that I am into Art or Contemporary quilts but I did like the work of Susan Shie entitled This American Life- her work is described as always narrative usually including her written thought with the Imagery. It was very different.
Till next time
