Welcome back to Inspirational Sunday.
Today, I will be finishing up the Modern Traditionalism category by sharing some very interesting quilts.
First up, is the winner of the People's Choice award. This quilt is called, "Mr. Swirl E. Bones" by Victoria Findlay Wolfe of New York, New York. It is hand appliqued, machine quilted on a frame, machine embroidered, and uses improvisational piecing. (Only four dots are appliqued, the rest is pieced.)
I love the quilting in this one.
Whew, all that fussy cutting is amazing too.
Next up, is "Thoroughly Modern Ginny" by Diana Vandeyar of Oakton, Virginia. It is machine pieced and machine quilted without a frame.
I like how the background makes parts of the block disappear, almost like she was sticking diamonds on her design board and took a picture before they were all in place.
The next quilt is called "Bursting Blues" by AnnMarie Cowley of Hillsboro, Oregon. It is machine pieced, machine appliqued, and machine quilted on a frame.
I really liked the triple stitched quilting on this one. I am trying to incorporate a bit more triple stitch into my own work, but I had not seen an entire quilt quilted this way.
The next quilt constantly had a crowd around it! "Pine Burr Quilt" by Tara Faughnan of Oakland, California. It is machine pieced and machine quilted without a frame.
Isn't it stunning!
I can only imagine how heavy this quilt is.
Next up, "Otaru Winter" by Cynthia Vogt of Kennewick, Washington. It is machine pieced (paper piecing), machine appliqued, and machine quilted on a frame.
This quilt is a bunch of log cabins with metallic bars appliqued on top.
Finally, here is another log cabin quilt, "Whimsical Logs" by Letitia Chung of San Francisco, California. It is machine pieced, machine quilted on a frame, and features hand Sashiko.
This quilt won 1st place in the Modern Traditionalism category.
I find it interesting that so many quilts in this category have modernized traditional blocks just by mixing up the color placement.
Which Modern Traditionalism quilt was your favorite?
