This caught my eye – The Weather in Her Head by Linda Colsh. The piece was selected for the Turmoil exhibiton.
And here is the flip side, The Sentinel by Linda Colsh, selected for the Tranquility exhibition.
The show debuted at the International Quilt Show in Houston.

This is so adorable. I can see this little fairy in my garden – probably in a greenhouse or garden shed so she keeps dry.
To see more of the winning pieces from the 2016 Quilt & Fiber Arts Festival you need to hie yourself to the La Conner Quilt & Textile Museum where they are displayed until November 20th 2016.
The 50th anniversary of the Apollo 11 and man’s first step onto the moon is the subject of a quilt exhibition and book entitled ‘Fly Me To The Moon’. You can read the interview with Susanne Miller Jones who put together the exhibition.
If you are going to the Festival this November then make sure you use Guide by Cell so you can hear the artist explain a bit more about each piece.
Sadly the piece I made for this book didn’t make the cut. You win some, you lose some!
I was browsing through this year’s BeadDreams winners and was – as per usual – amazed but not drawn by the pieces selected.
I love a good sense of humour and when I saw this amongst the entries for the Objects and Accessories section I fell in love. This is wonderful. And when you read the title you want to meet the designer. You KNOW you’ll have fun if you hung out together.
I’m truly sorry I didn’t spend the time to vote and try and get this little gem into the winner’s circle.
To see the rest of the designs go to the voting page.
The National Quilt Museum is holding this gorgeous exhibition by the Manhattan Quilt Guild from August 12th to November 15th 2016.
I am very drawn to this quilt Facade by Diana Goulston Robinson. Not sure if it is the repetition of shapes, the colour choices, the off center design, the overlay of lines, or the whole kit and caboodle. Likely the latter!
Just a lovely piece.
I remember when this quilt show was held at the Alexandra Palace in North London. Now it’s at the NEC in Birmingham. I’ve been to both venues and enjoyed spending the day at each.
The Festival is on from 11th to 14th August. I love the European wording – Patchwork and Quilting show. In America we don’t use the patchwork bit so much.
This year the SAQA exhibition ‘Celebrating Silver‘ is showing. This is such a fun piece – Silver Cake by Jeannie Moore.
Haven’t been to the Latimer Quilt and Textile Center in Tillamook, Oregon before so this was a bucket list place to go. It was the opening of our High Fiber Diet group show ‘Making Our Mark’. I managed to squeak in my piece ‘Fractal Ribbons‘.
Long way out there – right out in the country. Definitely a destination place. It was lovely for me to see all the pieces together. Mainly because I have been a member of this group for over a year and haven’t seen very many of the artists’ pieces. For once I could pore over each quilt for as long as I wanted.
The fun part was looking for the ‘mark’. Which is a design we all had to incorporate into our pieces. Sometimes not so easy to find!
I snapped some pix of all the pieces. Not best quality as taken on a phone but does give a good idea of how this ‘neutral’ exhibition looked.
Truthfully can say I didn’t have a favourite quilt. They were all really cool – and I’m not just saying that!
