My World

Be sure to visit My World to see more of our world or to participate yourself!

It's back to the Houston International Quilt Festival.
I'm a fantasy lover and a dragon lover.
These quilts sang to me!



Medea Escaping by Marilyn Belford from Chenango Forks, New York
Beautiful!
But it was the critter in the bottom left corner who waved to me.




I'd like you to meet Lizzie!
At least that is what a friend of the quilt maker told me -
the dragon's name is Lizzie.
Wonderful!



Words of Wisdom by Elizabeth Dillinger of Ajax, Ontario, Canada
I fell madly in love with this wise old dragon.
Dillinger based this quilt on the amazing needle work of Teresa Wentzler.



Lastly, this is Pandora
made by Vicki David and Terry Breazeale of
Santa Rosa, California.
Inspiration for this quilt came from a stylized Elizabethan
Christmas card.

More quilts next week!

Joy!

Beautiful, beautiful, beautiful work. Once upon a time I thought I would make quilts. But sewing isn't my gift. I do appreciate them, though. But these are magnificent works of art. I can imagine you with that first dragon one (Medea) spread around your shoulders.

I am still amazed at the quality of these quilts...especially the first one. It looks like a painting and not out of fabric! Such talent!

These quilts are extraordinary Snap. The one from Ajax? That's about 20 minutes on the highway from me!! And Theresa Wentzler..her work was/is beautiful. She passed away a few years ago...I used to see her work in all of my counted cross stitch publications.

Wow, what absolutely amazing works of art ! The drago is gorgeous but I am partial to Pandora myself - kind of queen-like here, isn't she ? ;)
Thanks for the eye candy, beautiful Snap !

The quilt are all absolutely amazing. I can imagine the time that must go into each one.

Betsy from Tennessee said...

Wow---what fabulous quilts, Snap... I especially like that last one --since you can see all of the quilting in it.

I'm catching up on blogs this week. Don't know how long it will take me. My word for 2010 is going to be PATIENCE --since that is the hardest thing for me to have...

Love your post about "Old" Christmases ---Raggedy and Andy, the silver Christmas tree, the gumdrop tree, etc. Brought back memories!!!

Great pictures from the zoo of the giraffe. Beautiful creature, isn't he?

Hugs,
Betsy--who is THRILLED to be home 'finally'
