This is the last post of the recent Brownstone Quilters show.
Here is my quilt "There's No Place Like Oz". I was so excited when this fabric came out because I love the Wizard of Oz. I used to love the delicious frightened feeling of seeing Miss Gulch and the tornado. As you may remember, I went as Dorothy this year for Halloween.
I decided to take a different approach when designing this quilt. I used inspiration from an antique quilt at the NYC Folk Art Museum. It's a simple puss in the corner quilt set strippy style.
I did a lot of fussy cutting to center elements of the fabric that I wished to highlight.
The real party is on the back where I let loose and used all the fabrics in the sepia line.What a tremendous surprise when it was selected for Judges Choice by Lorry Chwazik. It also received an Honorable Mention in the category.
This is Pauline's quilt. It won for Best Use of Color.
This is my flag quilt. I used mostly americana shirtings and prints. I overdyed the entire quilt after it was completed and it gave it a nice aged look.
Here are a group of quilts (sorry I missed a couple!) that were inspired by or reproduced from the New Jersey Heritage Book.
This is my Sumptuous Stars, which I've posted before.
This is my flying geese; Elegant Migration.
And last (but not least) my Asian Flower Garden.
Whew - It was a wonderful show. Of course, I didn't take photos of all the quilts because sometimes I get busy looking and admiring and thinking about them, then I blow it on the photography -- but I think it's a good overview. Hope you enjoyed it!
