Two Sunday afternoons ago, I went with my spouse to Jackson’s Quilt Show. I am not an expert on quilts by any yardstick, but know enough to share some patterns and styles that might inspire quilters or artists in other mediums. Quilt on.
Sometimes the fabric does all the talking.
Many quilts use blocks, like these stair blocks.
Some quilts have an embroidered look created by bunching up the fabric during stitching,
Some quilts are machine stitched,
Some quilts are lovingly hand-stitched.
Some quilts use very small (1-inch here) blocks. Here each tiny block is made of two different fabrics.
And there are many whimsical quilts.
