Handwork at QuiltCon

Although most quilts were quilted by machine, many with a walking foot on a domestic machine, others displayed handwork, whether quilting or piecing.
Hexie Beast by Liz Havratine ; the idea of huge hexagons
paper pieced on 32" wide poster boards was a quilt joke,
difficult to hand sew but  worth it for the chuckles.

Collection by Carolyn Friedlander, an exploration of shape and colour and the tactile qualities of handwork including
needleturn applique.


Everglade by Carolyn Friedlander inspired by a road trip sighting of a lattice pattern.
