Here are some of the quilts in the Art Quilt Friends Revisited (AQFR) exhibit:
|"Effervescent" by Nancy Bryant|
|by Sidnee Snell|
|"Industrial Nature" by Erika Close|
|"Menopausal Aspens" by Mandy Miller|
|My "Natural Symphony" (Joanna Price)|
|"Rhythm in the Landscape" by Jill Hoddick|
|"Where's Elmo?" by Lynda Christiansen|
|collaged floral piece by Jill Hoddick|
|detail of Jill's floral textile collage|
|"Glacial Melt" by Betty Davis Daggett|
Except for the unevenness of my cropping, I really like Lynda's quilt against the black background:
|Lynda Christiansen's "The Bare Tree"|
We included two of my journal quilts from 2005 . . . what? ten years ago!
Unfortunately, we were unable to hang any pieces that were framed or on stretcher bars, such as this gorgeous landscape by Ginny McVickar:
|"Purple Mountain's Majesty"|
|"Pachyderm Posies" by Dee Burson|
Finally, a few pieces from Portland's High Fiber Diet group and their show What's Blue to You?
|"Blue Ewe" by Pamela Pilcher|
|"Forget me Not" by GerrieThompson|
There's still time to see the show tomorrow! I'm returning then to see the entire show (including a special exhibit of felted items in another building), and to take home the exhibit quilts when the show closes at 4pm.
A huge THANKS to my fellow volunteers Lynda Christiansen, Elizabeth Bamberger, Jill Hoddick, Stitches in Bloom volunteer extraordinaire Mary Goodson, plus all the booth volunteers and participants who loaned us their quilts for this exhibit.
