Spliced, created by Michelle/ Factotum of Arts, was actually inspired by hotel carpeting. I definitely think Michelle took it up a notch! Look close and just maybe you can see the broken Half-Square Triangles that are the basis for her reinvented design. [ml_wilkie]
Read about the meaning Claire/Peony and Fern's has imbedded into her improv wall hanging Party of Four: "In the spirit of the name, the backing of the quilt features a section with four strips, each with four colors. Each strip is different but all share the same color palette — my artistic attempt at representing our blended family." Beautiful. [clairevogeley]
Just want to make sure you heard - Cheri/@tinkerellen is hosting another #teenytinypinnieparade! Running September 15 - October 6, this year there is one teeny tiny rule.... Pinnies must be around 3” or smaller to be considered teeny! Oh wow. But just look - Angele/ @fabricandink has already started with her absolutely darling mini snow-capped mountain. Such cuteness!
GOTTA LOVE IT!
I could not have been more thrilled to see that Marla/penny lane quilts had won First Place in the modern category at the American Quilting Society's Fall Paducah show with her "At the Junction". (This was after winning the same honor at the AQS Grand Rapids show in August!) As Marla tells about the win in Paducah, "This contest has a unique feature. It takes the first place quilts from each of the fifteen categories and lets the public choose the top seven awards, including the $20,000 Best of Show. There was only a 24 hour voting period. You can imagine the excitement when the results were posted and I learned my quilt had placed “4th Overall” and won a major award." Pretty cool! Big congrats to Marla!
