Thanks for the photos. I know what you mean about this particular piece. Can't quite put my finger on what it is. It certainly is well done though and deserving of a ribbon. I like the quilts in this show-there are some things that are a little different at least. The last show I went to everything seemed the same and the whole show was kind of...meh.

I had the same reaction when I (looked ahead) and saw it in your Flickr photo stream. The technique and execution is excellent, but I think the image itself (and the composition of that image) isn't as strong.

I am always amazed at a quilter who can make an image of a person and make it come alive...maybe that's why it got a ribbon.....however, I like the traditional quilts much better.
Thanks for sharing.

I immediately picked up on the perspective. The viewer of the girl is taller than the girl and the photo was shot at that angle. If you are shorter than the quilt was hung it puts a very bizarre perspective on the quilt. Just my 2cents.

My favorite is the one with the mariner's compass in the center. The colors are really eye-catching.

I had the same reaction when I saw it. I think Sophie has the right POV.
