The African quilt shown, was made by
Janneke de Vries-Bodzinga
I walked the streets of Birmingham today.
The attacks on the buildings were evident in all of the streets I walked down. Mac Donalds… phone companies, jewelers, menswear shops, everyone was boarded up…. but open. It was all very moving and I like this photo. It would make a great statement for the background of a quilt.
I visited the Art Gallery,
and the Cathedral…
I talked to lots of folk and then had the wonderful Indian meal I had planned for.
The definition of 'pictorial' (which I might say is new this year in Birmingham) sponsored by Luana Ruben of eQuilter.com is a picture quilt…. portraits, landscapes… I sort of thought the Bayeux was a bit traditional !!!!
What do you think a pictorial quilt is.?
There were a number of young designers and this young lady added to my appreciation of their skills.
and I found this quilt below fascinating.
