Connie Kincius Grinver's quilt, Wrinkly/Irony, was inspired by an internet posting that defined the word "irony" as the opposite of "wrinkly." Her quilt was an attempt to create the concept in visual form. Her hope was to bring a smile to the viewer. It certainly made us smile.
 

And, if you look closely, you just might see a bit of that Pantone Color of the Year...

Connie's quilt was part of the Art Whimsical category at Houston 2017.

Linzee McCray at the Moda Fabrics blog takes you on a virtual tour of the Welsh Quilt Centre. The Centre was opened to celebrate and promote a wider understanding of the Welsh quilt. The idea came from Jen Jones, whose obsession with collecting Welsh quilts, blankets, and textiles has spanned over forty years.
 
All but one of the quilts on display were whole cloth quilts and most were stitched as part of an initiative by the Rural Industries Bureau of Wales in the late 1920s through 1939.
