Yesterday I showed a bunch of photorealistic imagery; now let's go down the spectrum a bit and see quilts with looser realism -- but still no question about what is being depicted. Today I'll show you some having to do with people; tomorrow, with nature.
This was a major prizewinner; probably the judges were intrigued, as I was, by the hand stitching that held the multicolored fabrics to the black backing.
An interesting mix of techniques in this batch of quilts, from piecing to applique to painting. I'd wait a while before declaring representation dead at Quilt National.
