Festival of Quilts 2010

If you made it to the Festival of Quilts this year, you would have seen the work of DeAnne Hartwell Jones who had a solo exhibition. DeAnne is a traditional quilter in every sense of the word, as she pieces and quilts everything by hand. In her 30 year career as a quilter she has produced many beautiful quilts, predominently in the Welsh quilting style.
I want share with you a few of her landscapes, that she kindly let me photograph, as some of the fabric in the pieces were painted by me.

These too were all done by hand, and she will be demonstrating her technique at the Jen Jones Quilt Centre next year.
If you want to find out more about DeAnnes work, there is an article in the August 2010 issue of British Patchwork and Quilting.

Thank you for taking the time to comment. I do try to respond to each one but
if you do not hear from me it is probably because you are a "no reply blogger".
