People, portraits, and figures, sponsored by the Grace Company. First Place. Second Place, graphically portrayed with fabric. Third Place. Makes me smile. I love this quilt. The portrait has an amazing command. I want to look at it over and over again. Judges Choice. Strong emotion.
This exhibition was called the Power of Women. Actually its a competition so there were no names on the quilts…
I enjoyed the variety of techniques used.
When the names are published I’ll add them.
I just have time for a short blog today, and these images were from a trip to Dilli Haat craft market in Delhi two days ago. I go there each year and its a good way to see products from all over India in one place. Sure, its a little commercial, but I enjoy the experience and I often buy a small piece of precious fabric. However, this art piece is 10 foot X 4 ft six inches, and now it’s mine. It’s hand embroidered Kantha on silk.
As promised the Houses to create magic. I would love to share my little houses with you and I wonder what you would do with them? You could put them in a line, Built a Neighbourhood. Design a quilt. You can enlarge them, add to them, create your own, but you need to have at least 50% of my design in your creation. You have from now until the 3rd of August (SA time) to work your magic. The prize will be one of my small houses quilts made just for you! And 6 runners up will receive “The Adventures of the Amazing Alphabet” This time I will share all of the entries on a page on my blog. Pam’s houses competition. If you click on the link above it will give you the PDF you can print out.
Back to the blog.
Yesterday I had a day off from work in the studio. My Sister and I visited the Art Gallery of South Australia. As a member I get lots of wonderful information about lectures, talks and cultural walks and after attending one of the talks I came across this exhbition. I think it’s beauty and simplicity talks for itself. These ladies are indeed true Textile Artists.
The show opened officially for the full day today and I’m told it was absolutely packed. Around noon, 2 million people descended on Houston for the Astros trade. The town turned Orange, I sort of thought it was for me, the roads and parks turned a bright shade of orange.
I will take photos in sections and share them. These images are not for publication beyond this blog and I ask that you respect the right of the creator.
I’s almost upon us, the most memorable event in the Quilting Calendar.
There is a connection.
It’s got nothing to do with age, religion, or even culturally, it’s a gut feeling and often a chance meeting turns into a gentle friendship.
“It’s nice to meet someone who gets it” was a comment made recently.
“Yes it is indeed”
