Using a photo he took in New Orleans of vines overhanging a balcony, Kevin Womack expressed his love for the city by creating a two yard piece of fabric from that photo and cut it up and restructured it into his own abstract design. Enjoy Vines.

TQS continues its feature of quilts from the exhibit Log Cabin Today! Presented by Brigitte Morgenroth, a series of log cabin quilts created by Brigitte Morgenroth that were featured at the Houston International Quilt Festival in 2015. The exhibit is described as:

"Twenty-five years ago, Brigitte Morgenroth discovered quilting when she lived in Bophuthatswana (a former homeland in South Africa) and Libya. She creates modern and interesting Log Cabin quilts, with her choice of expressive colors and material, combined in different variations and arrangements: Log Cabin with a twist, triangular, undulating, or pineapple. Silk and polyester satin are her favorite materials, sometimes combined with patterned cotton. Mainly, she sews large quilts and sometimes smaller, more sophisticated ones. All of her quilts are hand-quilted. She gives this old pattern a modern, interesting character."

Please enjoy Brigitte's eighth quilt from the exhibition.

Title of Quilt: Pineapple Blue

Not feeling like the whole quilt was tying together, Sharon Hansen incorporated the center block she made for her quilt, Star Struck, into the border to bring about a more cohesive look.

Star Struck by Sharon Hansen of McKeesport, Pennsylvania was featured in the Pieced, Large category at Houston 2019.
