FOQ18 Group Quilts

The group quilts section includes artistic collaborations and quilts made from contributions from members of a quilt group  often to raise money for charity so covers quite a large range, whether preplanned or combined into a whole once gathered in.
These are the photos I took.
This one by  the Liberty Stamp swap entitled "Rosemary turns 80" is a true group friendship
quilt. I liked the setting whereby the pieced or unpieced blocks can be seen as the features,
I think this won second prize and was an artistic collaboration whereby separate sections of a picture are divided up to be constructed by different members to form a satisfying whole. I loved the colours and subject matter: obviously the La Flor y nata del Patchwork group used common fabrics to make Retorno Al Paraiso Birds


Another friendship piece: Julie's Quilt by Julie
 and  her friends

Another true group quilt: The Power of More by the London MQG. I assume 
this a playful setting of improv. blocks made by members. 

I loved even the title of this super piece: Staggered by the Quines who Quilt! Such an effective
 background. But who will get to have it??
