I take a lot of photos at quilt shows–I took more than 1000 at the Interntional Quilt Festival in Houston last week. Here is Hollis Chatelain and her Best of Show quilt, Hope for Our World, at the preview Wednesday night.
This quilt was always surrounded by a crowd, whether Hollis was present or not. On Sunday morning, I was surprised to find a clear shot and was able to take a clear, almost square photo, a pole with lighting directly in front of it was the only thing in my way.
The dye painting element of the quilt is done in shades of purple ONLY. All other color you see comes from the incredible quilting. There are quilts that I could look at forever. This is one. Because time is limited at any quilt show and there are many quilts I wish I could stand and stare at longer . . . I take photos. Here are some detail photos from Hope for Our World.
I'm organizing and labelling my photos from Houston and hope to be able to share them soon.
