We all like different kinds of quilts. I enjoy the look of art quilts and have tried some techniques in my own quilting. The photos below are a few of the art quilts on display at the Marquette County Quilters' Association Autumn Comforts 2012 Qult Show.
This original design, by Nancy Henderson of Marquette, is named African Warrior Masks and used machine piecing and pleating with free motion quilting. It was embellished with fusible applique, paintstiks and beads.
This is one of my favorite quilts from the show. Judy Parlato of Gwinn, MI, made this Feather Flowers quilt, designed by Caryl Bryer Fallert, using the applipiecing technique.
This quilt is visually striking, created to have a 3-D effect. Log Cabin with a Lens was designed by Valerija Mezhybovska. The pattern uses curved paper piecing, not to mention that maker, Chris Wiik of Negaunee, MI, had to translate the pattern from Russian.
I've heard other quilters talk about leaf pounding, but have never done the technique myself. This quilt, aptly named, Autumn Leaves, was made by Carol Siebe of Gwinn, MI. She used Shiva paint sticks and machine thread quilting to revitalize her quilt, that she noted had faded badly.
This original design quilt was made by Rosemary Glenn, the MCQA show featured quilter. Rosemary writes, "People over the world are migrating from rural to urban. So do these English paper pieced blocks. Lame highlights." This quilts is exquisite.
I hope you have enjoyed my pics from the Marquette County Quilters' Association Autumn Comforts 2012 Quilt Show. I thoroughly enjoyed the show and hope that I brought some of that enjoyment to each of you through my blog.
