I was very excited to see that Pam Holland from Australia was giving a talk at the Houston International Festival. I've followered her blog for some time and find her sense of colour and design to be very inspiring. Her talk was on the Creative Journey and combined a slide presentation along with her speaking.
I love how she used the bright fabrics in this Frida Kahlo.
Day two at the show and I was drawn to this quilt and was surprised that it was another Terry Aske quilt. This one is called Inside the Tipi and was inspired by a photograph her sister took.
Tutti Fruitti Village by Susan Bleiweiss, inspired by a digital sketch on her iPad and using hand dyed fabrics including the black.
Crime Scene Investigation, Pauline Salzman, original design, the facts are the facts and nothing but the facts. Someone else did the damage.
Silk by Hollis Chatelaine, Superior Threads Award of Excellence.
Pineapple Plantation, Mariko Tomizawa, designed by Kathy Nakajima. An earthquake happened as she was making the quake, she was evacuated and took this along and was glad to be able to finish it.
