Asheville Quilt Show 2015!

The Asheville Quilt Show isn’t juried, but it always has some outstanding quilts. Here are a few of my favorites this year.  I was particularly struck by how many modern designs there were, even in the categories that weren’t designated “modern”.

Jean Larson

Jean Larson won second place in the Modern category with “Off Center”

Connie Brown

Connie Brown, who is a beekeeper as well as an outstanding quilter, made this lovely miniature, “The Hexagon Life”

Purple Haze, by Connie Brown,. She says she made it many years ago, but I think it looks contemporary.

Geez Louise, by Connie Brown, was a fun quilt in the Modern category. I wondered about the background fabrics with their mottled look.

Finally, Jocassee Sunrise by Lynne Harrill caught my eye. Not modern, but certainly beautiful.

There were many more wonderful quilts, but I limited myself to the modern ones and those I especially liked.
