Today I’m going to show you some of the quilts that caught my eye at the show. No theme… just as I saw them here and there…
First of all the quilt above was the winner of the Art Quilt category, it’s by Jean McLean and it’s called ‘And the Sky Danced’. Not my stile… but you have to admire the ‘skillz’!
She uses mathematical sequences when arranging her colours and blocks so even though her quilts might seem random… they’re anything but.
These ones for example, entitled ‘Four slices of Pi’ (who doesn’t love a pun?) are a four different visual representation of the Pi sequence.
Let the Forest sing
Sequence 1 and 2 started off as two separate pieces set always to a mathematical sequence but as study of cold and warm colours. They were then re-cut and integrated with each other.
