While travelling in New England recently, we were happy to see an exhibit of works by Maria Shell at the Shelburne Museum in Vermont.
Although it appears rustic, this building has a high-tech interior to protect the quilts stored there
Here are a few of her fun art quilts from the show.

The Shelburne Museum is one of our favorite places in Vermont, and having Maria’s exhibit there was the icing on the cake!
You can learn more about Maria on her website.

I love the Shelbourne!
We do too 🙂
Once again, your post has been informative and an eye-opener. You have introduced me to the beautiful work of aria Shell. Thank you.
She has a good book about her technique and she teaches online too
Her work is amazing! She spoke at one of our SAQA meetings and did a trunk show when I lived in Oregon. She is a cool person!
Yes, I got to take a Zoom class with her during the pandemic. She’s a hard worker.
Oh that sounds awesome!
What wonderful ‘quilty’ adventures you’ve had lately, Zippy! I do like this featured artist. Thank you for introducing me to this museum. They offer lots to explore on-line, too. Spending some Sunday time doing just that!
Oh, good. Now I’ll go to their website—thanks for telling me about it 🙂
It must have been a wonderful experience. Her work fascinates me.
She has a book showing how she does it. I have used her techniques some and love seeing her work.
