In between classes, and all day on Saturday, I wandered through the exhibits. So much caught my eye, but I promise you that this is not nearly a majority of the quilts on display. First up, a challenge taken up by a number of modern quilt guilds. “This year’s challenge requires participants to work collaboratively to create completed quilts using a predetermined color palette while crafting a design that plays with scale.” As you can see, the palette leaned heavily towards blues. The playing with scale was particularly fun to see.
I’ve always been intrigued with this “Comb” effect, sorry I didn’t record which guild made it. Nice quilting, too.
The Lancaster guild played with the classic Amish bars quilts found locally and created this. Again, the quilting is striking.
A couple entries played with the word “scale.” This one is entitled “I thought you said scales!”
That finny fish at the bottom intrigued me, and I think I can see how she did it. Lots of pleats and carefully placed stitching.
Finally, quilt playing with flying geese. This is called Migration.
Love the flying geese in the left-hand yellow section.
