Quilts at ArtPrize 2013

Never too late to show you photos of quilts that showed up in this fall's ArtPrize competition!

I am so excited that Ann Loveless of Frankfort, Michigan won the first place in the popular vote at ArtPrize 2013.  Her landscape "Sleeping Bear Dune Lakeshore" was done from a photo in northern Michigan. It was fused raw edge appliqué from batiks.  I heard comments from people who could not believe it was fabric; they thought it was either a painting or a photograph.

The next is a quilt made from wood! The detail is amazing. Fraser Smith's quilt made it into the Top 10 popular vote.  Here's a close-up. See the "stitching"?

And another wood cloth piece from Fraser Smith, this time a "leather" jacket.
