I've been writing this week about the QSDS show at the Riffe Gallery in Columbus. Here are some abstract quilts that I liked.
I'm a sucker for machine-piecing and was happy to see that Linda Frost made her quilt the old-fashioned way, including some nice curves and pieced-in pointy strips. She used both machine- and hand-quilting, a combination you don't see too often, to excellent effect. Note how the judicious use of neutrals peps up the composition.
I wrote about Barbara Watler's impressively hand-stitched piece at Quilt National, and here's another, equally impressive piece. But this one is abstract, complemented by a black-and-white color scheme. Makes me want to get out my needle and start embroidering.
