My favourite quilts from this exhibition are below. I have tried to take at least one photo of each of the artists work. I allocated myself half an hour for this exhibition and had to revise my plans, as the quilts were just stunning and deserved much more of my time.
By Frieda Anderson (US) : "Jack in the pulpit" series
By Irene McWilliams (Ireland) : 5 Flowers
By Bergen Rose (US): Peace in nature
The fibre art utilises two digital photos, one photo while travelling and the other of one of the artists paintings. The photos were printed from computer onto fabric - cotton (small appliqué) and silk organza (cow landscape). The cotton bottom layer was hand and machine stitched with batting and backing and embellishments. The top overlay is stitched only to the top and is loose, so flutters when there is a breeze.

I find it hard to believe that this is a quilt, it is so like a photo, it is only when you get up close that you realise it is a quilt!

By Hilary Beattie (UK): Bull rushes
By Charlotte Yde (Denmark): Chaos and Order; passage of time

There were many more quilts by these artists, I have tried to take a photo of the work that I found most interesting, but other pieces were just as worthy of looking at and it is simply not possible to take photos of every quilt. I do hope you enjoy seeing all these quilts through my lens. Hopefully, if you were thinking of going to the EPM, but were not sure, these photos will convince you that this is a show very worthy of a visit!
