We love the simplicity of this silk log cabin block enhanced by the beautiful complexity of embroidery stitches in Not Your Grandma's Crazy Quilt by Ruth Chandler. We are also entranced by what almost appears to be "ruched" binding.

Learn more about fancy stitches and embroidery from Ruth in Show 2504.

Oh Baby...We've Come a Long Way by Laura Fogg uses a multitude of techniques and fabrics...from fused appliqué and free-hand thread sketching, to tissue paper, sparkly tulle, and novelty trims. She uses all of this to represent different aspects of the Women's Movement and shows just how far we've come to where we are today.

This quilt was on display as part of the Alternative Techniques exhibit at the Houston International Quilt Festival 2018.

This is Ruth Chandler's first quilt, Thistle Haleakala, that she made in 1991. It's a queen size, hand quilted, hand appliquéd Hawaiian quilt. Isn't that what everyone does for their first quilt? 

Watch Ruth in Show 2504.

We love the way Denise Griffiths intrepreted her native Australian flowers in her quilt, Floris Circularis, and the graphic use of the black and white semi-circle on the side. It all works together to make a spectacular quilt.

This quilt was on display as part of the Alternative Techniques exhibit at the Houston International Quilt Festival 2018.
