Featured Quilt - Take A Look At The Sunrise

Gulf Coast Sunrise by Susan Mogan is a beautiful quilt inspired by the New York Beauty pattern. We were intrigued by how she replicated her piecing with her quilting and thread choices. We enjoyed looking at all the details in this spectacular sunrise. Susan's quilt was on display as part of the Abstract Small exhibit at Houston 2018.

The Quilt Show Puzzle: How Many Tigers Do You See?


Inspired by Optical Illusions - "Tiger, Tiger" by Kris Vierra

Kris says of Tiger, Tiger, "I have always been fascinated with the eyes ability to trick the mind. Do you see the beautiful girl, or the hag? The faces, or the vases? I wanted to make a quilt inspired by these types of optical illusions. In addition to the two regular tigers, there are 14 others hidden in and around the quilt, in the applique and the quilting. Inspired by the works of Escher, Dali, and Willistration. Tiger, Tiger is part of the permanent collection at the National Quilt Museum."

I Spy With My Little Eye

Sometimes the quilting of a quilt is more than just filling up the space with swirls and zigzags. A lot of quilters have fun with the quilting and fill it with little secrets for the viewer to find later (as evidenced by Kris Vierra's quilt above and garment to the left). At The Quilt Show we want YOU to have fun with your quilting too! Learn the tips and tricks from the best teachers so you can have your own little secrets.
