In an exhibition the size of Quilt National it is not easy to pick a favourite, so here are a few more of the details which caught my eye for their colour, composition & skillful execution. L is a detail of 'Suzhou Street Scene' by Mathea Daunheimer who also signs her name in Mandarin characters.
Bonnie M Bucknam used large hand stitches on her piece 'Reflection'.
Sue Ackerman was awarded the Most Innovative Use of the Medium for 'Africa Scarified IV' left which used tea bags, organza, beads & hand & machine embroidery.
Britt Friedman won the Heartland Award for 'Grey Grasses IV' a beautifully subtle piece with enormous presence in the photographic images of grasses on the blue background.
Pam RuBert always delights the imagination & brings a smile, the Eiffel Tower making an appearance in 'Paris- Wish You Were Hair'.
