Beth Nufer and Clem Buzick's quilt, Carnival, won Best of Mid-Century Modern at PIQF 2017. While it's quite the colorful quilt, what really caught our eye was the ombré effect of the background fabric. They also used silks and cottons to create a wonderful feeling of depth and a magnificent 3-D effect. The quilt measures 82" x 82" and is machine pieced, hand appliquéd and longarm quilted.

Artist's Statement:

"I love geometrics with 3-D. Mid-century fills that bill. I used silk fabric with cotton background to give it depth."

Sometimes less is more. This quilt, as many show cased on this site, are just too over the top and therefore unappealing to me. I do appreciate the expertise in the quilts, but it is not aesthetic to me.

One can practically feel the pieces on the quilt moving through the air as if being magically juggled. The color choice to get the incredible dimention effect is outstanding

These are so beautiful. The colors are bright, and bold, patterns are unique in the way they are being used.
