Featured Quilt - A Bright and Beaming Beetle

Jewel Beetle by Esther Tronchoni Simo was featured in the Animal Kingdom category at Houston 2018 and really shows off its colors and photo-realistic appearance. Based on a photograph by Levon Biss in an exhibition in the Oxford University Museum of Natural History, Esther says, "As a trained biologist, I was fascinated by the photograph of this beetle the moment I saw it in an exhibition. I wanted to convey the bright and varied colors that this tiny insect has that can only be appreciated when the image has been enlarged. I felt the best way to do this was with raw-edge appliqué against a black interwoven background."
"Workbook" A Ticket to Lisa Thorpe's Great Show
Organize Your Inspiration With Creativity and Fun

In our latest show, Lisa Thorpe shows Alex her workbook of observations and moments of delight that often become the inspiration for a piece of work. The workbook allows her to flush out ideas, colors, words (elements) that then become the intentions (principles) of the final design.

The Quilt Show Puzzle: A Fusible Wonder
"Strip Quilt" by Tara Faughnan

Created during a weeklong workshop with Rosalie Dace (Show 711) and featuring all fused strips, no prints, Tara Faughnan's Strip Quilt is a fusible wonder that you can barely even tell is fused together. But by the time Tara came home after the workshop to put the quilt together, she had forgotten how to use the fusible and needed to relearn the process.
