Here’s one of the showstoppers at the MXQ Quilt Festival in Manchester, NH. It’s called The End Of The Line by  Joanne Baeth of Oregon and placed first in the Surface Desing and the Large Wallhangings categories.

The natural world is phenomenal and so much of the man-made world - our architecture, our cities - are stunning accomplishments. They exist hand in hand in both beautiful expressions and sometimes disastrous manifestations. Our entire existence with the natural and the invented is intertwined – each dependent on the other, even as my art evolves, each breathing in the wake of the other. Surface design is one aspect of the process that I love. I thoroughly enjoy the play with color, value and construct, particularly the improvisation which starts with one thing, an idea, a glimpse of a vision, perhaps something that captures my eye for a moment in time and it grows organically. I become focused on whatever piece I'm working on and follow my muse to find my way.

  1. Great steer to “and then we set it on Fire”! I hadn’t heard of it before and it’s right up my alley. Thanks for the quilted eye candy. I would have awarded that lovely composition too. I appreciated the detail shot as well. Lots of interesting things to look at. Thanks Janis…
