Quilt National report 5 -- representation

I generally don't like representational quilts, since I think it's difficult to depict real things in the fabric medium.  But I'm always on the lookout for fiber artists who do a good job with this problematic assignment.  Here are my awards for representational work:

Best artist likeness:  Alice Beasley herself, with Alice Beasley on her quilt

Alice Beasley, Entre Nous

Best animal likeness:

Carol Goossens, The Conversation

Best Fauvist painting likeness:

Jean Evans, My Space


  1. Ohhh I love love love Alice's work!! Thanks for sharing!

  2. I love Alice's necklace! It looks like she picked up part of your Spaghetti Sauce and hung it around her neck.

  3. Jean Evans' work is fabulous!

  4. Jean Evans' quilt was made entirely by hand -- and rather than applique the pieces to a ground, she simply appliqued them to each other, which I found extraordinary. Glad you liked it!
