I have decided to post some quilts from Houston with explainations on why I decided to capture them on "film" for posterity. (& So I know later...)
In no particular order....
Night Quilting with Hertzsprung & Russell by: Karen G. Fisher, Arizona
In general, I am not a big fan of embellishments... To me for the most part they seem "Ongepatcheket" (Yiddish for overdecorated/overdone) but this quilt used those star shaped buttons perfectly! (The link explains the relevance & the quilt name.)
Up, Up, & Away By: David Taylor, Colorado
Perspective, Perspective, Perspective!
The Time of Amber By: Junko Sawada, Japan
I apparently like "pictoral" quilts... I really like this Japanese version for the unusual fabric choices.
My Sweet Town By: Mayume Ueda, Japan
What is a Koban? (Any one care to hazard a guess as to why I like this taupe quilt?)
A Bright Summer Day By: Ulla Addresson, Italy
I usually go for pictorals that are blatantly unabashedly quilts... I like to see old-fashioned green calicos used as leaves, etc. but this one impressed me anyway... What can I say?
Summer Succulants By: Suzanne M. Hyland, Utah
Love the purple orange color combination for this quilt of a plant! I also like the square on a square/small version on top of the large version technique.
Luminous Diamonds By: Cathy Tomm, Canada
Its black & white & bright - if I had place myself squarely in 1 box, that would be my box... I recognize so many of these prints from my own stash... This quilt appears to be "doable."
A journal quilt by L. Hayes, Illinois
Again, I like the way there are squares over the mainpiece... I like the use of photo transfers, I like the striated look of the earth... (I love that with journal & miniature quilts I can get the whole thing with out a terrible angle or people in the way. :o))
A Journal quilt By: E. Schamber, Virginia
The reflection/water is AWESOME!
A journal quilt by: R. Robertson, Maryland
I love the different techniques - especially the eye for "I" & the "S."
Packrat Palace by: Ruth Powers, Kansas
Another quilt where the embellishments are appropriate. Also this is a pictoral is made in a manner that says it is a quilt - not a photograph or painting.
Grand Poppy By: Lenore Crawford, Michigan
I love this background!
Prairie Dawn By: Ann Brauer, Mass.
I love the fabric choices that she made!
Kosher Chicken Deanna Apfel, California
This one was in the Art Whimsical category & boy did it ever make me grin!
Wild Cat by: Sandy Curran, Virginia "The Calico Cat" has to include a photo of a cat quilt...
