Carla from my gym is very involved with Nelson Quilters' Guild, and they had their biennial (I think) show this weekend at Nelson Girls College. There were so many people at the show I was envious; I'm not sure a weaving show can attract that kind of crowd in Nelson.
But, boy, talk about labor-intensive work. To me, the patchwork on the front is bad enough, but the quilting in those elegant curvy lines is just mind-boggling.
They provided white gloves so we are allowed to touch them and turn them over, and were also allowed to photograph. Here is one of Carla's, and one of my favorite in the show. I had seen this before when she finished it, spread out on the gym floor, but it was so much more impressive to see this hung so I can stand back and admire it. I'm not confident the colors are true on your monitor, but the values of the pieces were carefully studied and positioned, making this an understated but stunning piece.
Well done, Carla!
