The Quilt Show Puzzle: "Around the Bend" by Vicki Conley
Do a puzzle of Vicki Conley's quilt, Around the Bend.
Around the Bend is one of Vicki's National Park poster quilts and celebrates Big Bend National Park in South Texas. Using the view that she saw from the Rio Grande River as her inspiration and the focal point of the quilt, she surrounded it with the beautiful yellow-golden grass seen there in the winter and populated it with javelinas, an animal similar to a wild boar, crossing through. The lettering of the park title was done using silkscreen that Vicki designed in Photoshop and created Thermofax screens which she then silkscreened on top of the finished quilt.
