Quilt or Piece of Art?

I think every quilt should be considered artwork, but some just demand a gallery showing! Here are a few such masterpieces that I found at the 2014 Coburg Quilt Show. (Note to self: next time make sure you charge the battery on the Nikon so you don’t have to rely on less than stellar cell phone pics.) Dear readers, use your imagination to infuse deeper richer colors than you see here! 😉

“This quilt was originally a completely white machine quilted whole cloth quilt, using trapunto. It was then painted with pastel chalk, adding pearls and Czechoslovakian beads (over 10,000) to create color and sparkle” — quilt show guide book

By the way, this amazing quilt is for sale. The $5,200 price tag alone shows it is art gallery worthy. 😉

There were several other art quilts, while not quite so grand, were worth a second or third looks as well:

Stars seemed to be a popular theme this year. I will take you on that tour in my next post.

Until then,
Happy Quilting!
