Much as I love the exhibition quilts at FOQ I have to say it is the galleries that do it for me.
And this year was no exception.
I did not photograph them all - some did not allow photos, and some, well I was just photo'd out - but one stunning gallery that caught my eye was Susan Shie. You can read more about her here.
Now if you google as much as I do, dip into American publications like Cloth Paper Scissors (like I do) and generally fritter away time on the web, then it is likely that you will have come across Susan Shie. She ranks as a bit of a quilting celebrity.
Her style might not be to everyone's taste, but I love the whimsy and the colour.
These three were just some of the quilts on show in her gallery at FoQ.
She was at FoQ in 2010 (how did I miss that?) and in this video generously shares some of her techniques.
