The quilts at AQS in Charlotte were inspiring, and there were more modern ones than at most AQS shows. Here are 11of my favorites. They aren’t necessarily the judges’ favorites; those are available on the AQS website here. I judge mainly on innovative or attractive overall design; the judges have another set of rules. I hope you enjoy my choices!
The Modern Design Challenge had loads of great quilts, but I only took pictures of my very, very favorites:
There was a display of art quilts, including this one by an art quilter whose work I really like:
And I liked this quilt by Miriam C. Coffey, who is in one of my guilds:
And there was a big display of quilts from the Tentmakers of Cairo. I’d heard about them (from you, Bert!) so I was glad to see some of their work:
And finally, some quilts I just liked for various reasons:
Thank you, Mary! I’m glad you liked my quilts. A friend pointed me to your blog today and I wa surprised.
Hi, Jean! I’m so glad to hear from you! When I noticed that TWO of my favorite quilts were yours, I wanted to interview you for a feature on my blog, but I was still looking for a way to contact you! Can you give me 15 minutes of your time during Friday or Saturday of AQS-Chattanooga?
I think I could do that. We can communicate via private email.
But you’ll have to contact me, because I don’t have your e-mail! Mine is ZippyQuilts[at]gmail[dot]com. I look forward to meeting you.
Mary, You picked some beauties. This show must have been fun. Thanks for sharing!!! Ann
A friend of mine told me about this post on your blog — thanks so much for including my quilt as one of your favorites. I wish I could have seen it there in person.
Hi Anya, I wish you could have been there, too. Thanks for checking out my blog!
