Global Themes

I enjoy quilts inspired by events or global themes.  This is Climate Change by Gail Garber, the first place winner in the large art quilt category at Fiber Arts Fiesta, which took place last month in Albuquerque.

Climate Change by Gail Garber

Climate Change by Gail Garber - Detail
Gail's description of her quilt, from the program, is "Textile expression of sudden changes in our warming world." It was quilted by Kris Vierra.

It's a great example of what's possible with paper foundation piecing.

Kris' quilting is the perfect complement to the quilt design.

Just wondering ... this quilt got first place! Who actually gets the honor, the piecer or the quilter? I think both deserve it. It is beautiful!
