More Quilt Festival photos from the 2014 show

Here are the last of my Quilt Festival pictures ... next year I'll be sure to take a "real" camera rather than my phone camera, as I wasn't really happy with the quality of these images. Still, good enough to enjoy and remember good times and beautiful quilts!

Above is the introduction to the Dinner @ Eight exhibit "Reflections", by Jamie Fingal.
The exhibit itself is curated by Jamie Fingal and Leslie Tucker Jenison.

Not all of my pictures turned out, but here are some of my favorites from the Reflections exhibit:

Cottonwood Reflection by Cynthia St. Charles

Groovin' on a Sunday Afternoon by Barb Forrister

Haiku by Lyric Kinard

Matisse and the New London Skyline by Leslie Tucker Jenison

Amazements of Tender Reflections by Wen Redmond

Read and Reflect by Lesley Riley

Reflections of Our Fathers by Desiree Habicht

The Parable of  the Dragon and the Sheep by Susan Fletcher King

Troubled Water by Larkin Van Horn

These next quilts are from various categories, but all are art quilts.

Rockin' Cat by Barbara McKie
This may be my favorite quilt of the show. The cat and the background are from two different
photographs, and they meld so beautifully that the cat is quite camouflaged. I loved the surprise.

Shared Destiny by Patricia Kennedy-Zafred
This quilt won a First Place ribbon in Digital Imagery.

Sheer Joy by Pam Holland
This was another small Silent Auction quilt that I would have loved to own.

The Dogs by Shannon Conley

The Visitor by Susan Fletcher King
(still one of my favorites!)

Three Times Three by Peggy Brown
I stood and stared and this quilt for a good ten minutes ... enthralled.

Umbrellas in the City by Terri Krysan and Page Johnson
(this quilt won Second Place in Mixed Technique)

Unequal Until Death? by Randall Cook
This is the one quilt that I wanted to quote the Artist's Statement for:
"The couple depicted has spent 22 years creating and living their lives together.  The lack of marriage equality makes their marriage less than and not equal to heterosexual marriages.  Depicting the couple in a somber and "un-couple like" representation, with portions of the figures as mere ghost-like approximations, is an attempt to convey some of the emotions involved with this inequality."

I'm sorry I don't know in which category his quilt won the ribbon,
as I can't find it on the IQA page.

Unfinished Arrangement by Peggy Brown
A small Silent Auction quilt.

Windbreak by Mariane Williamson

Women of the Desert by Janneke de Fries-Bodzinga
A small Silent Auction quilt.

Worry by Virginia Greaves
This quilt won Third Place in Art-People, Portraits, and Figures.

I had quite a few more pictures that, unfortunately, were not clear enough to publish. I have tried my best to give proper attribution to the artists, but if you see any errors, please contact me with any corrections.  Please enjoy my little quilt show!
