More Up-cycling on Quilts

Chris Arnold, who made the Buffalo quilt I posted yesterday, had two other quilts at Fiber Arts Fiesta.

Smile, a portrait of Sitting Bull, was in the large pictorial quilt category.

Smile by Chris Arnold - DetailI love portraits made from printed fabric and thought this one was pretty wonderful.

Chris' third quilt in the show was in the category for large, innovative pieced or appliqu├ęd quilts.

It is Star. The description says that the 4-point star was improved and the background is a Buddhist tapestry.

Those are really unusual. They definitely fall into the category of art quilts. Maybe not as appreciated in this particular show as in some others, but a wonder to see. I expect those would bring really good prices in San Francisco or New York.

I, too, love the portraits with prints. This one is exceptional. Thanks for sharing it.
