Last Saturday I was able to attend the Everything In Between quilt show that was hosted at my Alma Mater, SUU. I almost missed the show, attending the last day it was open. Boy am I glad I made it!! Here are some of my favorites!!
I absolutely loved this butterfly quilt. (As did my daughter who visited earlier with her school class.) The colors are so incredibly vibrant and the applique is just phenomenal. I wonder how many pieces needed to be added to create this masterpiece.
Another stunning quilt. The girl is made using turned edge applique. Can you image creating all those curves with turned edge applique?? And I so love the vibrant colors.
And the quilting . . . blown away !! I mean seriously, look at these feathers. Amazing!! I wish I would have taken a close up of the face. It looked so realistic because of the lines created by quilting.
And lastly, this was my favorite. Doesn't it look more like a painting than a quilt!! This quilt spoke to me on a personal note which is probably why it is my favorite ;)
All in all, a very inspiring and wonderful visit!! I loved that I could get right up close to these amazing works of art to see how the quilters made each quilt. It is just so fascinating and thrilling to me to be able to understand the process of their creation. I mean, I could stare at a painting all day and still have no idea how it was done, but this, this I could really appreciate because I felt like I understood the process of creation and therefor appreciated all the more the beauty and talent they show. I don't know if that makes any sense, does it?? Have you ever felt like you can appreciate something more because you know what it took to create it??
Edit - I am sorry that I can't add the names of the quilters. I was so enthralled with the quilts that I totally forgot to even look at the artist. I didn't realize this until I went to write the blog posts and the show was closed then so I couldn't go back. I know this is super insensitive and I feel horrible about it. If anybody happens to know the quilters of each piece please let me know, I would love to add their names to their work.
