Below are a few photos of original designs by artists work exhibited at the Houston International Quilt Show 2012.
Below is a quilt titled, "Hidden Treasures" by David Taylor (hand appliqued & inspired by Sandy Corbin's photo). Isn't it beautiful?
Next quilt is, "Natsumi On Her Bike", by Hiroko Miyama (her inspiration was her beautiful granddaughter). Hand applique & many, many dimensional small flowers. Beautiful work of art in person.
Next is, "Little Girl & Dog", also by Hiroko Miyama. Again, her granddaughter was the inspiration for this beautiful piece.
Next is, "White-Throated Sparrow", by Barbara McKie (image transferred to fabric then, thread painting & applique).
Next is, "Heidi's Schlowers", by Andrea Brokenshire (handpainted silk applique fused to confetti background).
Next is, "Synergy"by Nancy Sterett Martin & Karen Sisteck (hand painted on silk).
My pictures do not do these beautiful art pieces justice. This is why it is such a special event to attend in person, if you're able to do so. I'll post more later when I have a little extra time.
I'm currently working on my own original but not yet ready to post anything just yet. In the meantime, I hope you found the above photos inspiring.
I'd love to hear your comments...
Until next time...
