A weekend ago I went to a small quilt show in a nearby small town. There were perhaps 50 quilts, at most. A few of my photographs turned out well enough to share. I didn't keep a record of who made the quilts.
Next are three quilts I don't have close-ups for. The one with the older women is small, less than 24" x 36".
This next quilt was chosen best of show. It was very striking with its black background and bright flowers. Except for one print it appeared that all the flowers, leaves, and squares were stitched from batiks. The quilter used a variety of applique methods. It really was the most beautiful quilt in the show.
And here are close-ups of several of the blocks. The photography makes it appear as though there are different blacks in the background but the blocks were all of the same blackness. (The problem was the light and my unpolished photography skills.)
