Featured Quilt - Second Place Pieced at Houston 2023

Flying in Circles by Dena Angela Miskel won Second Place in the Pieced category (Sponsored by TrueCut) at the 2023 Houston International Quilt Festival. Using "Walking in Circles", a free block design by Brigitte Heitland of Zen Chic as its design source, Dena says, "Flying in Circles was created out of my love of vintage cheddar quilts. I was drawn to the secondary pattern created by the curves of the Walking in Circles block. I collected the cheddar and bee fabrics while on a quilt run in California before the pandemic and enjoyed fussy-cutting some of the fabrics. I added the blue circle for a modern twist."

The Quilt Show Puzzle: Different Variations on White

"White on White" by Amy Pabst

Inspired by Russian painter Kazimir Malevich's painting White on White of a white square on a white background, Amy's quilt, also titled White on White, features roughly 15,000 pieces and is made of five different white fabrics. Each of the white fabrics is made of a different fiber content, i.e. silk and others, providing them with their own distinct luminosities that allow the viewer to distinguish between the different whites. Measuring 16" by 17", Amy took her quilt with her to the Museum of Modern Art in New York City and held it up next to Malevich's painting for a photo, achieving her goal of getting more quilts into fine art spaces.
