Quilt Symposium, Auckland, October 2019: Some photos from the exhibition

4 10 2019

The quilt exhibition that’s part of the biennial Quilt Symposium has hundreds of magnificent quilts on display. There was no way I could take photos of them all, so this is just a very small selection of those I did photograph (the rest of my photos are on Flickr: https://www.flickr.com/photos/rhondamadeit/albums/72157711179169921).

This Dear Jane quilt really attracted me because of the colours and fabrics used. I’m not usually a fan of traditional quilts, such as Dear Janes, but the pastel colours drew me in.

I loved this red wine quilt! The evocative splash and splosh of the wine hitting the glass, the movement, and the size — this was about 1 m long, so a great size for an art quilt for someone’s wall.

This wholecloth quilt was HUGE. And the threadwork to create the design was just magnificent. There’s just one fabric in this quilt — the black background. Everything else is thread.
