Something Different

There were a couple of art quilts at Fiber Arts Fiesta in Albuquerque last month that were very distinctive, with a style of their own.  They were made by Chris Arnold, using unusual and re-purposed fabrics from thrift stores.

This very large quilt is Buffalo. It was in the category for large Art quilts.

The buffalo is a collage of fabrics appliquéd on top of a star made of ticking fabrics. The outer border is improvised, using re-purposed fabrics.  I love me some up-cycling.

Thanks for sharing all your photos from Fiber Arts Fiesta. I remember this quilt and also took pictures of it! A lot of the ones you've shown, I somehow missed. Keep up the good work!

Very interesting! I love how come people can take a mish mash of fabrics and make something of them. Who would have looked at this pile and thought "Buffalo!"

This is kind of weird but interesting. I'm really drawn to it and rather fascinated by it.

The shapes all around the outside of the ticking are interesting, too. Crazy quilting at its finest, perhaps?
