Here and There: Works by the Manhattan Quilt Guild

Facade by Diana Goulston Robinson

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.

The Festival of Quilts 2016

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.

Fractal Ribbons by Rose Rushbrooke

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!
