FNF 3 -- award of excellence
The second award of excellence at Form, Not Function went to Sara Drower of Wilmette IL for a tiny piece (maybe 12 inches wide) based on phototransfer.
I apologize for the bad photo; the piece was framed under glass, which made it difficult to see the beautiful details, and even more difficult to take a photo. Had I bought this piece (I didn't -- somebody beat me to it on opening might) I would have immediately taken the glass out of the frame.
It's a photo of a construction site, strewn with miscellaneous debris, which is rendered on the quilt with tiny beads and metal springs; the machine quilting enhances the grid format of the new construction and the city in the background.
And this piece is exquisite. Except for the glass.
