Quitography!

Are we tired of it yet? Last post, on this I think.... Exhibit comes down in January.

I did go to the opening of the exhibit and stayed for an hour or so. Met a few of the other artists too. I promised full views of my pieces and the inspiration photos. Warning, this is picture heavy... 1st will be the inspiration photo and photographer credit, my quilt and then if I have it, a photo of it hanging with some of its counter parts. I think if you click on the image, you will get a larger size for a more detail.

So many of the others were absolutely captivating! 

If you have gotten this far, Happy Thanksgiving.

Quilt Artists of Kentucky

Today is the opening of the Quiltography Challenge in Lexington Kentucky. It is a collaborative project between the Quilt Artists of Kentucky, a sub group of the Kentucky Heritage Quilt Society and the Lexington Creative Camera Club.



There will be over 100 little quilts, each one 12 inches square, along with the inspiration photograph. The Emotions Challenge Quilts are also being displayed, which I did not participate in.

This evening there will be a reception.... and hopefully many of the quilters will be in attendance along with the photographers! 

I am excited to see all the quilts hung together, to see them in person and all the different takes on the same photograph! It will be interesting!

Doing this little project has inspired me to pull out a couple of my own photographs... and turn them into small quilts.

More later -Beth
