Tomorrow I am leaving for England and for the ‘Festival of Quilts’ in Birmingham. As usual I’m going to London for a few days, soaking up the wonderful bustling city with its theatres, museums, bookstores and not to forget the pubs. Then I will take the train to Birmingham and indulge in quilts and textile arts. You see – this week will be pure pleasure for me.
But don’t feel left out! I have a few more videos from ‘Quilt National’ for you – the artist talking about her or his quilt. I really love them as they are so interesting and informative. So enjoy while I am away. And when you have seen all of them you can start looking forward to the pictures of the beautiful quilts shown at the ‘Festival of Quilts’.
Barbara Schneider takes pictures of tree-rings and translates them into quilts.
Bob Adams decided that he wanted to be in ‘Quilt National’ one more time. And he did it!
One of my favorite quilts is by Charlotte Ziebarth. It depicts reflections in water.
Joanne Alberda’s visits to a ghost town led to a series of 5 quilts – one of them is shown here.
Sandra Poteet’s quilt uses an interesting technique and has some surprises in it. Have a look.
Ann Johnston created a quilt called “Dry Lake” – a vision of cracked up soil.
Jean Renli Jurgenson’s quilt is a tribute to the people who live in the slums of Mumbai.
A traditionally pieced quilt in ‘Quilt National’? Yes! And if you want to know why look at Maria Shell’s quilt.
What a great quilt! And what a disturbing theme ‘Dementia’. Ellen Oppenheimer does a great project with her students.
Clams as Velda Newman sees them.
There are still more videos of this year’s ‘Quilt National’. Go to www.youtube.com and write Quilt National 2015 in the search option. Each and every one is worth seeing. Enjoy!
