Featured Quilt - Third Place Pictorial-Large at Houston 2023

A Crowd of Strangers by Jill Kerttula won Third Place in the Pictorial-Large category (Sponsored by World Of Quilts Travel) at the 2023 Houston International Quilt Festival. The subjects of Jill's quilt are ones that you have probably seen before in your day-to-day life, the denizens of a shopping mall. However, this quilt doesn't just represent a snapshot of one group of shoppers, it is an amalgamation of many created from year's worth of photos taken by Jill.

She says, "I have taken hundreds of pictures of the regulars in the Charlottesville downtown mall. This piece is a combination of about 15 of those images combined into one. Even in a crowd, few of us look at or interact with each other. We are a crowd of strangers, each in their own world. One place, many times, many lives...all in their individual world of thought."

What Has Valerie C. White Been Up To Since Her Last Show?

It's Time For Show and Tell with Valerie

Alex and Ricky welcome back Valerie C. White to The Quilt Show to catch up with what she has been doing since her last time on the show. Valerie’s work continues to focus on roots but now also includes the subject of refuge as well. As an artist who lets imagery reveal the story, she discusses how therapeutic knitting with others in the park during COVID led to her self-portrait quilt. Along with two solo exhibits under her belt, she continues to love monoprinting with paint. Join us as we take a dive into career now and look at her beautiful quilts.

Learn from Valerie, and Kate Colleran, by watching Using Evolon for Die Cutting and Monoprinting with Valerie C. White | Fabric Braids with Kate Colleran.

Alex Was Blown Away

When you first see Kathy Wylie's quilt, Beauty in the Broken, you are amazed and then confused. Are those holes in the quilt? How did she do those borders? What was her inspiration? We caught up with Kathy at the 2023 Houston Quilt Show to get all the answers.
