In August, I was given a quilting book - it had been sent by mistake and was going to be pulped -
luckily, someone thought of me and the book was saved. It is by C June Barnes and is called Exploring Dimension in Quilt Art.
June Barnes is a very talented quilter who, I think, has conducted a series of experiments with shapes and textures. Some interesting nuggets to be found....
So. I was very surprised to find an exhibit of pieces at the Festival of Quilts that looked very familiar. While the objects look good in the photos, the reality was more interesting. There are some nice textures to be seen. Many of the items resulted from using materials which shrink at different rates - a firm base onto which is sewn a fabric which shrinks greatly - interesting textures result. This one is called Squaring Up and is based on a nine patch.
And this is called Lumps and Bumps. It looked like sea anemones.
Wound Up - based on an Archimedian spiral.
.....and a series of different cone shaped bottles. These must be quilts, because I can see wadding in them!
