Despite a change in plans, a friend and I got in a quick trip to Quilt Week in Chattanooga to see the quilt show. No time for classes this year, but we had a great time. I was especially happy that there was a large section of modern quilts. Here are 10 of my favorites.
Celebrate, by Jean Larson of the Chattanooga Modern Quilt Guild
A Slice of Pi, by Connie Griner. This quilt has the numerical value of pi quilted into the border to umpteen decimal places!
Love in the Digital Age, by Kristin Shields
Motik, by Mary Ramsey Keasler of the Chattanooga Modern Quilt Guild
Tiki Dilemma, by Jodi Robinson. She says her “quilting designs were chosen to add interest without overwhelming the overall design of the quilt”. I like that!
Door Into Summer, by Joni Morgan
I see that gray backgrounds are still very popular! (You KNOW who I’m talking to!)
Forgotten Chicago, by M. A. Cramer. She asks whether the object shown here is rising or falling!
Pink Flamingos with Lemonade, by Connie Brown of the Modern Quilt Guild of Asheville
Through the Open Window, by Amy Anderson of the Modern Quilt Guild of Asheville
Initial Inspiration, by Vista Scruggs Mahan of Rising Fawn, Georgia (just outside Chattanooga)
Of course, we had a little time for chocolate as well, but what’s done at Quilt Week stays at Quilt week 😉
Later on, I’ll have an interview with Sandi Suggs, whose quilts were a special exhibit at Chattanooga Quilt Week.
