Grab a cup of coffee because I have so many quilt CELEBRATIONS to share with you! Have fun with this eye candy!!
I hope you enjoyed the above quilts from an exhibit at the Bellevue Art Museum CELEBRATING African American quilts from as early as the 1920's. Do you see influences that remind you of Tonya's current LOVE quilt without sashings, Gwen Marston medallion quilts, Victoria's "made fabric"? As I loved these quilts with mom, I was mindful of Sujata and Nifty's styles and how much I enjoy their talents. Ironically, mom and I found this exhibit during our quest to find Nifty's exhibit. I thought it was at the Northwest Quiltshop in Bellevue but later found out it was a different Northwest. Try again today!
With all of the energy of children and adults playing with scraps, loving the quilts at BAM, I was inspired to stick to my love and make a wonky baby quilt in place of the conventional brick pattern. The baby has parents that are so HIPPIE and so I played with themes that would play to their heart while celebrating the new bundle coming in November. Now to quilt!
And do you notice the pinks and yellows mom brought with her? Keeping you curious of what her project is whlie here with me. Started a block last night and it is yummy....keep you posted!
Happy Sunday and thank you for joining me today! Em
