This quilt won a "big" ribbon at Mid-Atlantic & nothing at Lancaster. Somewhere in that sentence is my explanation for going to several "big" quilt shows a year. (Hershey is still around the corner.)
More than anything, I like what this quilt is saying (at least to me) about how connected some people are to their technology & how disconnected tehy are from their surroundings. The assumption that I made is that they are in Italy - but she has hr nose in a mirror & he is looking at the photos that he took earlier - with his iPhone on the table ready to summon him away from Italy...
For the record, in general while I love pictoral quilts I am not a fan of the painting on fabric or the folded 3-D aspects of this quilt. So this one completly captured me by its message - not as a quilt...
What is your take? How do you feel about this paiting on fabric/quilt? Why do you think it won a blue ribbon at one show & nothing at another?
