|Cloudy Day , Victoria Findlay Wolfe quilted by Frank Palmer, 2015|
I'm pretty excited to have 17 Double Wedding Ring Quilts on exhibit at Houston International Quilt Festival this year!
I was so excited in fact, that I made 5 NEW quilts just for the occasion. Four of them are shown here.
I will be giving a talk at the exhibit on
Sunday 25th, 1-2pm
Saturday 31st, 1-2pm
Sunday Nov 1st, 1-2pm
Please stop by and say hi!
Cloudy Day is a mix of many many styles and is a variation of my quilt "A Summer's Day," in my Double wedding ring Book: Traditions Made Modern
I used, Reproduction fabrics, Batiks, Linen, Double gauze and quilting cotton to make this quilt... Quite a strange combo of fabrics... I also appliqued the colored dots, Not he white ones... And actually this photo is before I finished appliqueing smoother bits on it... But you get the idea... ;-)

|Deconstruction, By Victoria Findlay Wolfe, 2015|
I could not wait to get my hands on my new fabrics! I had this quilt in mind when I designed the stripes...Red stripe and gold stripe, white and red were used to just go wild and have fun playing with composition, styles of double wedding rings, full melon, and pieced arcs, and full arcs, all in one quilt. Blurring the lines, much like if I had a crayon in a coloring book on where I am dropping in color.

My Grandma Elda used to ask me constantly, "I hope you having fun, and you really like what your doing."
I can honestly say Yes, yes I do, Grandma.
