First of all, not all Houston Quilt Shows are created equally. Of course, there are always examples of amazing, fabulous, beautiful work, but I don't always feel that every time I do I get a ton of inspiration for myself. Don't know why exactly. This year I have been on fire all month since I got home. I can't say I've even looked at any of the pictures before tonight, but something lit a fire under me and I can't stop making since I got home. Here are some of the ones I loved. These spoke to me because of the artistry, the compositions, the technique, the idea, or they were funny, or I just found them appealing visually, I guess. There were so many beautiful pieces; these are just a few, really. Unfortunately I wasn't smart enough to take photos of the description cards for each of them, so I can't say who made them (next time I'll do better).
Here they are, in no particular order, except for the order in which I took the photos. I apologize in advance for the photography, but the exhibition hall isn't all that well lit, and no flashes, ;and I'm not a great photographer anyway but you'll get the-er-picture, so - ENJOY!
|This one was one of my absolute faves, too. So beautiful and so masterfully done! WOW.|
And finally, my personal favorite. I absolutely adore this quilt -the artistry the idea, the colors. It just blew me away. I'm mad at myself for not taking a better photo! This cuts some of it off and doesn't do it justice.
Now you tell me which one is YOUR favorite!
