IQF Continues

Okay, we are back at the quilt show. Most of my company has gone and except for a showing you a few good deals at Marshall's that Maggie got and some food pictures, I don't have too much to share so here goes another installment in IQF. Tomorrow or the next day we are taking to the road and going to an art fair in Estero so that will be, as I like to call it, blog worthy.

This is a triptych done by Joan Frantz and is called The Neutrals Series. It is fused, appliqued and machine quilted.

Wendy Hill made bias strips with a random arc pattern and assembled this piece, Entanglement, in collage units and held them together with satin stitching.
Ishi-Datami is the name of this work by Cynthia Vogt. I just googled the title and found Cynthia's website. Ishi-datami literally means stone mat (tatami) and this piece is foundation pieced, machine pieced and machine quilted.
This work is by Peggy Brown and is called Conversations. It is a contemporary abstract nine patch. She used watercolor, ink jet transfer in a painted collage; fused and hand appliqued and machine quilted it.
Rachel Wetzler made Hybrid by machine piecing, fusing, machine applique and quilting.
Circles du Soleil was all done by machine - pieced, appliqued and quilted. The artist who did this work is Sheila Finzer.
Margaret Rolph did this piece called Sparkling Bubbles. I have a piece that I did that has the same feel. Margaret used paint and stamped cloth and then machine quilted it. Mine is appliqued by hand but the result is surprisingly similar.
Check out this piece called Ice Crystals by Sandra Gregg. Pieces like this always warrant a
and then another closeup to see how the hell it was done. I am here to tell you that it was fused, machine appliqued and machine quilted. Now you know.

I am sending Maggie to the beach today so I can get some quilting done and she can get some sun. It's a good trade.
