Her favorite technique is needle turn applique--which is probably the reason I haven't attempted her patterns yet as my curves are not likely to turn out the best.
Next Carolyn Friedlander quilt is called Everglade.
Same pattern in different colors and scale, so interesting.
More exquisite needle turn technique.
The last pic I took of the CF collection, remember I was in a hurry as the exhibit closed in minutes! This one is called Wainwright.
Another well-known modern quilter, Victoria Findlay-Wolfe, won a ribbon for this quilt.
Her latest twist on traditional quilts, all solids in this braid, done in partial seams.
I found the choice of bright yellow thread fun!
Here's another set in the unintended order....Closeup first. Loved the colors and mini stripe detail.
And the whole quilt:
This final quilt I could have studied much longer. I loved the offset setting and creative quilting. Closeup first...
I have a GO cutter for the Snowball block and hope to made one someday. After the huge Winding Ways quilt I made, a break from curves was necessary, but this is a great block I'd like to play with.
So ends QuiltCon 2018. The next two are out of state, I think Austin, TX next year and Nashville, TN the year after. I don't thiink I'll make those but we'll see what my sister talks me into. She took a bias tape class from Latifa Saafir one night, and a block printing class from another instructor the next day, an all day class, so barely got to see any of the quilts displayed. I hope QuiltCon returns to CA again!
