It's been a very good year for art quilts and quilting in general. And although I think all of our Subversive Stitchers are winners!!! We have a few with the ribbons (and prize money) to show for it.
I just visited the Quilts.com site and many of the winners are already posted. I saw some very familiar names there and even some familiar quilts that have been featured here at Subversive Stitchers: Women Armed with Needles. Check out the guest blogs for more photos of their work and a discussion of their process and techniques and inspiration. Just click on the artist's name in the right column listed under 'Guest Blogs."
The competition was tough and talented and oh so inspiring. To even be included in such an impressive array of quilts would be enough. But to win!
Way to go!
Please, please, please, speak up if I missed your quilt in this list!!!
Robbi Joy Eklow garnered a 2nd place award for her imaginative (and dare I say 60s reminiscence with the glowing oranges and purples) for iCandy 3.0. Love that title! She won in the Art Abstract-Large competition. (Above)
Kathy York won first place in Art Abstract, Small. Her Falling Through the Cracks brought Kathy a 3rd place in the Embellished category. (both shown here)
Maria Elkins, one of our favorite guest bloggers, won at least two prizes. Her lovely Violinist won an honorable mention in the Art Miniature category and Broken Dishes walked away with a 2nd place award in Art- People, Portraits and Figures category.
