Simply Stunning

It's easy to be wowed by a quilt with a well executed, complicated, difficult technique ... but I also love the surprise of encountering a quilt with a more approachable technique that is stunning and in no way diminished by it's simplicity.

This is Ray of Light, by Victoria Romero-Cederberg, the second place winner in the the innovative pieced and/or appliqu├ęd quilts category at Fiber Arts Fiesta last month in Albuquerque.

This is one of the quilts in the show that were a challenge to photograph because it was blowing in the wind of the big fans that cooled the event space.

I love black & white fabrics ... and what a fun way to use them.

The quilt, Meadows by Lorraine Hollingsworth was in the same category and, for me, another of those simply stunning quilts from the show.

I loved her use of color, fun quilting designs, and that pieced binding.

At this point, it probably goes without saying, but both quilts were quite large–once again the "small" category for innovative quilts was not consistent with other "small" quilts in other categories.

Both are eye catching. Nice to see the different quilting on the second. Thanks for sharing.

So different. The second one reminds me of the 4 seasons. Lots of snow....

I like both quilts, too, but that top one could live on my wall forever!
