If you've seen part 1 (posted last Saturday) or part 2 (last Sunday) then you know that the quilts are pretty spectacular. The ones I'm posting tonight are some of the quilts with a modern bent to them. Most were in the MQG section, but not all were and I've mixed up photos so badly that I really just don't know.
They are all modern, though, and as I look at them, I wish that I had created every one.
I have to explain this next quilt: it's a Braille quilt that spells out the words for color. You read the dots from left to right. Each set of dots represents a letter, so if you decipher a couple of words, you can eventually decipher them all: red, orange, yellow, green, blue, violet.
It's made in a linen and sewn in tight horizontal lines leaving out the circles (which are perfect!). I really love this one. For some reason it spoke to me and I wanted so much to touch and handle it. Luckily my husband was with me and forced me to behave. Such a tactile idea and such a beautiful, thought-provoking idea.
Was I right or what? Come back tomorrow for more about the Fiber Arts Festival in Plaquemine. We'll visit the Lock Museum and the mighty Mississippi.
