A big part of what draws me to a quilt is the telling detail. Some quilts look great from across the room but closer inspection adds little to the viewing experience. In fact, the impact may get lost up close. Other quilts shine only when viewed from 12 inches away. I especially love quilts that work at both distances. And that’s where those details come in.
Here are some details that grabbed me at the 2014 Lake Farmpark Quilt Show.
As I was leaving the show, this improv quilt back caught my eye and camera. Unfortunately, I didn’t photograph the front, and don’t know the name of the maker. I was glad the piece was hung so you could see both sides. I wonder if there were more quilts whose backs should have been on display as well.
