I didn’t photograph every quilt in the AQS quilt show in Syracuse but I was tempted! So many outstanding quilts were on display, it was overwhelming to take them all in. Of course, I did take some photos.
My Favorite Quilts (in no particular order):
I love that Cassandra changed the colour of the thread as she quilted through each segment of the circle. There is a very subtle shadow of colour on the white fabric.
I love the beautiful soft colour of the eggs against the graphic black and white of the quilt.
Ann’s quilt is beautifully quilted with leaves and branches supporting the nest.
My photograph doesn’t do justice to this amazing vista created by Beth and long arm quilted by Clem. It looks like you could walk through the archway into a beautiful summer day.
Claudia’s great sense of colour and design are apparent in this skillfully pieced quilt. Marilyn’s long arm quilting adds beautiful depth to the design.
I really liked Chris’ improvisationally pieced log cabin blocks in turquoise interspersed with purple and red. They really pop against the black background.
The name of the quilt made me laugh! Connie, seems to have a good sense of humour and definitely a good sense of design. The machine quilting added visual interest and lots of texture.
Melissa’s quilt was absolutley amazing to see in person. It appeared as if you could pluck one of the pillows off the shelf!
Charli’s quilting highlighted the strong design.
Cassandra’s quilt was whimsical, fun and amazingly machine quilted!
I really loved this quilt, the texture and colours really gave the impression of faded wood. Gorgeous work by Carol and Lois.
I encourage everyone to go out and visit quilt shows in person. Photographs don’t do justice to the amazing pieces of art on display. Go and visit a show soon!
