You may have noticed that there is an online quilt show going on RIGHT NOW! About 550 quilts were entered in a total of 12 categories.
Everybody could put their quilt in the show and everybody gets a vote!
You can VOTE for three quilts in each category. You only have to click on the quilt you love and a little red heart appears. With 12 categories, you have 36 votes in total!
There are so many beautiful quilts on show. Why don’t you go over and have a look? When you leave a comment, you may even win a give-away!
I have entered my “Paint it” quilt in the mini category.
I have been absolutely blown away by all of your comments on this wall hanging!!!
Thank you for your kind words, enthusiasm and praise!
There are more “quilts on show” to talk about.
Last week we went to see a Quilt Show. The Open European Quilt Championships 2014 was held in Veldhoven, near the city of Eindhoven. Next year the show will be closer to home, namely in the city of Maastricht.
Anyway, I promised you some quilts! I will show them in separate posts. I sadly do not have the booklet from the show, so I can not tell you the name of the quilter for every quilt.
The theme for the Championship was “Naar de meester”, loosely translated as “Following the master”, which was interpreted by many as using famous artwork as the inspiration for their quilts. Of course many of these famous art works were Dutch.
Lots of Vincent van gogh and Johannes Vermeer.
Vincent van Gogh, “Starry Night”, 1889. Little strips of fabric, appliqued and FMQ. No piecing.
The swan is a cut out from a famous painting by Jan Asselijn, which was/is interpreted as a symbolic political piece from 1650. Thread painting, paint, embellishments (“pearls”)
An a detail from the piece on The Girl with the Pearl Earring” by Johannes Vermeer. See all of the buttons?
More pictures in the next post!
Have wonderful week!
