Diane Rusin Doran: There were so many amazing quilts at ArtQuilt Elements that I couldn’t stop with just one post. Here are a few more lovelies.
Diane Siebels was awarded Best of Show for Head 10, and no wonder. This is a quilt that really needs to be seen in person, the hand stitching is mind boggling. I wish I had been able to take a considerable amount more time to look at it in order to take it all in.
Dorothy Raymond did a lovely job with her interpretation of Tree Trunks. The leaves seem to nearly flutter.
Margaret Black Color Wedge! This is part of a series exploring the exclamation mark. In her artist’s statement Margaret says “Although the point is not evident in this work, the lines and cut shapes are the wedges of the exclamation.” I think her use of color here is just wonderful.
Niraja Lorenz Strange Attractor #3 – Riverway. This is another piece that was simply amazing. It’s all pieced, those are not striped fabrics. Love it!
Cindy Friedman’s use of transparency is so effective in Kgale Hill Shadows. She’s obviously mastered the use of sheer fabrics.
Cher Cartwright Chutes & Ladders 2. This is such a joyful quilt, both in Cher’s use of color and design. Varying the angle of the ladders produced quite a strong composition.
