Featured Quilt - Riding Through Your Dreams

Take Dream as a Horse by Jing Chen of China is truly a dream of a quilt. Two stunning horses seem to appear out of a sea of watercolor. Hand pieced and machine quilted, Jing's quilt was on display as part of the Animal Kingdom exhibit at the Houston International Quilt Festival 2018.

Quilts Do More Than Just Keep You Warm

The Quilt Show's Marketing Director, and it turns out intrepid reporter, Kristin Goedert came across a museum exhibit in Utah a few years ago that told the story of The Panguitch Quilt Walk from the 1860s. This story, one of ingenuity and perseverance, shows how important quilts can be both personally and for survival. Learn the story, and see the quilt made in tribute to this heroic tale.

The Quilt Show Puzzle: Garden Inspired Silk Dupioni

image

"Gilding the Arbor" by Bethanne Nemesh

Bethanne writes of Gilding the Arbor, "This silk dupioni quilt is an original design inspired by my love of whole cloth quilting, Asian silk embroidery and antique botanical prints. All the flora and fauna was free drawn on the quilt with chalk and refined with wash out pen before quilting. The design elements can be recognized in my garden photography, as well as images from gardening catalogues and Dover design books."
