Fiber Works Revisited - Colorful Quilts

This is the fourth and final post in my Fiber Works Revisited series, featuring art quilts from the Fiber Works exhibition hosted by the Fiber Funatics quilt group. Today I am showcasing colorful quilts.


Alice's Magical Moments in Wonderland by Peg Pennell is an award-winning art quilt with a non-traditional shape, bright, vibrant colors, and embellishments.  Wow!


Bubbles by Roxann O'Hare uses a monochromatic color scheme, but with the artful use of value, she has created the illusion of bubbles on fabric.


Small Things Make A Difference  by Shelly Burge, was one of three winning entries in the Crafting A Better Planet Competition sponsored by Mountain Mist Batting and the International Quilt Study Center and Museum.  Colorful larger than life clothespins were used to communicate the idea that we could conserve electricity by hanging our clothes out to dry.


Crystal Delight by Pat Stava uses a rainbow of beautiful batiks pieced in thin strips to create a colorful starburst design on a black background.


I hope you have enjoyed this series.  If you are in the Lincoln, Nebraska, area any time before November 21, 2011, I urge you to view this exhibit up close and personal.  It is on display in the gallery at the Bernina Sewing Studio,  1501 Pine Lake Rd., Suite 12, Lincoln, NE 68512.  There is no admission charge.
