Form, Not Function 5 -- something different
Every art/quilt show worth its salt has something a little different, something that doesn't follow the usual format of a flat-against-the-wall quilt. This year's FNF, of course, chose one like this for its best in show; here are some more pieces that fell into this niche.
Shannon Conley, 33°20'N, 105°33'W, 64 x 34 x 6" (detail below)
Gibson has neatly cut magazine pages into tabs, layered them and stitched everything to a fabric support. I might have wished only for a bit more color to pep up the white expanse of the top half. I hope the paper will hold up for this quilt to be shipped and seen at many more shows!
