I have spent a beautiful morning on my front porch, watching a new pair of bluebirds prepare to nest in the birdhouse, bumblebees feeding voraciously on my six-foot diameter lavender plant, and listening to the concert of mockingbirds. It is very cool and partly cloudy. What a nice morning!
Today I bring you more quilts that I photographed at last weekend's North Carolina Quilt Symposium show.
This "crazy quilt" took the award for Best Embellishment. It is by Susie Williams, 18 x 11.25, "Morning Glory: A Crazy Quilt in Circles."
Love Bubbles by Gail Reilly, 48 x 48, Best Use of Color Award
Jewels in the Garden, detail, by Eve Agee, 42 x 48
Raiding Mom's Stash, detail, by Jill Struble, Quilted by Jan Struble, 56 x 90, 3rd Place Duet Quilt
Irish Rose Triptych: Netted, Tidal, Loopy, details, by Susan Brown, 36 x 18, 2nd Place, Studio Art Quilt. I loved seeing a needle-felted piece in the show! Dyed silk bolt, plus wool, silk, ribbons, yarn, thread.
Lei Nahelle, (Woodland Lei), by Amy Takaoka Lasordo, 49 x 42, 2nd Place, Jane Hall Challenge.
That's all for this addition, but don't worry, there is more quilt show to come!
Wish me luck on the last week of school, always a challenging time to work with children! But we have a fifth grade picnic Monday afternoon and an assembly Wednesday for fifth grade "graduation," and then I just work half a day Thursday and I'm done!
