Category 7 – Art/Expressive
Debi Webb, Derecho, 31”x48”
Inspired by a road trip through Iowa in 2020, a powerful derecho flattened corn and soybean crops right after we passed through. Machine pieced and applipieced.
Erlinda Rejino, Asian Mitosis, 32”x48”
I was experimenting with the stack and whack method and had several hexagons to play with. The blue/black design popped on the red background so I just kept adding hexagons.
Jean Freestone, KICK COVID, 15”x31”
Original Design inspired by Pat Paula Improvisational 2015 class
For our UFO Challenge I finished an improvisational piece from a Pat Paula class. It became a sign of the times then later reworked to make the message clearer!!! Can you hear me now?
Joan Calarco, Hibiscus in my Garden, 19.5”x17.5”
Original Design inspired by Ellen Lindner’s Jan class in creating quilts using an inspirational photo.
This was my first attempt at creating an art quilt using an inspirational photo as my guide.
Peg Green, Bird Priestess Dancing, 14”x20”
Inspired by figurines from ancient Crete of dancing women wearing Crowns of Birds. I imagine them as soul sisters moved by the holy spirit. My piecing and top-stitching follow the rhythm of the dancer.
Peg Green, Earth Mother, 10”x12”
I was inspired by the classic Venus of Willendorf figurine, a tiny (4 inches tall) Paleolithic masterpiece carved from limestone 30 thousand years ago.
Peg Green, She Drums the World to Life, 20”x22”
Machine-pieced, free-motion stitched, hand appliqued. I made this after I took a class in hand-drumming, fell in love with the pulsing, pounding rhythms that feel magical, otherworldly, and yet intimate like my own heartbeat.
Sandy Myers, Curvalicious, 60.5”x75”
Original Design which started as a Stack and Whack quilt
Quilter: Peg Normandin
This quilt started as a stack and whack quilt and when I placed it on the design wall it took on another perspective. I added a background and altered the edges. Then it took on a life of it’s own!
