Festival of quilts 2

As promised here are a few more quilts that won prizes at the FOQ.   I seem to be behind myself these days s I have been to the Harrogate quilt show since Birmingham so much catch myself up,  means a few blogs over the next few days.

This is the winner of the Quilters Guild challenge, the theme was gardens and this quilt was made by Yvonne Brown


this is the winner in the my first quilt category,   made by Jill Johnson and quilted in the quilt as you go method,   very nice, this one really caught my eye.  This one got a lot of attention,  a first quilt and beautifully made, what impressed me too was her fabric and colour choice




this is the art quilt winner by Merce Gonzaez Desedamas in Spain called sunrise, moonrise

 

winner in the 2 person quilt section was this one by Mark and Bridget Mann who are mother and son. Screen printed onto recycled men`s suits creating a portrait of the mathematical code breaker and founder of the Computer Science   sorry do not know his name, not in the catalogue



this is the secondary school winning quilt, made by the Rebecca Palmer original sewing group form Cappamore Ireland



this is the group quilt  winner, made by Tanglewood Textiles a group of 6 



seem to have slipped up here and have no details of this one but I am sure it was in the winning section


this is I believe the winner in the miniature section,   Roberta Le Poidevin from St Peters stitched this one

 I did not find the section with all the miniature ones in,   this was in the section where they had all the winning quilts.

Hope you enjoy seeing these,   sorry will not be sharing all 700 with you all but maybe will share a few more in a couple of days if anyone would like to see more.

Thanks for sharing! I'm surprised that the trend seems to be away from traditional block piecing and more to art quilts with subdued colors. Was the show just for art quilts or are traditional quilts just out of favor? Seems like the winners are quilts that don't have definition. Interesting. XO

Hello Margaret, thank you for taking the trouble to share the photos of the wonderful quilts. I caught up also with the post before where you are showing many more beautiful quilts and ..... the grandfather clock. I can't quite understand it. Is it hard, has it a woodden core? Is the outside made of fabric? We own such a clock which we bought in England a few - in fact many - years ago. We love it - it gives such a warm character to the room. But now, one in fabrics!!!

These quilts are truly amazing! I am awed at the lovely textures and techniques that have been used in each one making them so unique . I loved all of them but the one with the sunrise, moonrise and the one with the portrait are two of my favorites !

Boud said...

Thanks so much for the virtual tour. I think the code breaker one is a portrait of Alan Turing.

It is nice to see so many of the quilts again, that I did not take a photograph of. Thank you for letting me revisit the show.

QuiltSue said...

Thanks for showing these Margaret. It does seem that a lot of the quilts at this particular show are art rather than traditional. I do hope we're not going to lose the traditional idea of quilts that go on beds and laps. They're always what I think of as quilts whereas wallhangings are art. Even though they are not my thing, I can still enjoy looking at them at seeing new techniques etc.
