World Quilt Show, Part 3 – Machine made

Following up on my last 2 posts about hand made quilts, today I will show pictures of some of the machine made quilts at the show that caught my eye.

First up is ” A Sweet Fantasy on Glowflies” by Mihoko Tanaka of Japan.  This is a beautifully designed and made quilt.  It epitomizes the excellence of design that characterizes the majority of quilts made by Japanese women.  How do they do it?  I would love to know what the basic art training consists of in Japan because their sense of design and aesthetics seems much more developed and present in the general population than it is here in this country.

Next is a wonderful portrait, “The Wrath of Poseidon” by Marilyn Belford of NY state, who is well know for her fabric portraits and you will see why when you look at the pictures.  The details are amazing!

For some unknown reason, my computer is giving me some trouble and taking an extremely long time to download each of these pictures.  I’m going to end this post now and will share the rest of the pictures of quilts made mostly by machine in the next couple of posts.  Hopefully the computer will behave!

Thanks for stopping by!
