Composition IX Composition IX
Deidre Adams   •   Littleton, Colorado, USA More Info
$4200   Buy Now  » My work is an effort to find a quiet place within, while paying homage to forces greater than myself. What we have learned about our world through science is balanced by the mysteries of the unknown and the sense of wonder at what we have yet to discover.
 Cellular Structure III Cellular Structure III
Sue Benner   •   Dallas, Texas, USA More Info
$10000   Buy Now  » Structure and organization exist on multiple levels, from the subatomic to the cosmos. A cell can be described as the functional unit of a larger whole. I think about cells as an organizing device in many contexts, but the biological cell is a particular source of fascination for me.
Moments Moments
Peggy Brown   •  Nashville, Indiana, USA More Info
SOLD Moments is one of a series continuing my ongoing fascination with Italy. Each quilt celebrates the colors, textures, and shapes of ancient structures in abstract form.
Whirlpool Whirlpool
Yael David-Cohen   •  London, United Kingdom More Info
$5000   Buy Now  » This work demonstrates the confluence of growth and new life in the midst of natural processes.
Dutch Colors Dutch Colors
Willy Doreleijers   •  Dordrecht, Netherlands More Info
SOLD The windmill has traditionally been a striking presence in Dutch landscapes. This work celebrates an old technology that still has bright prospects. Hard lines and color contrasts bring to life the windmill’s struggle against the elements.
The Beach The Beach
Sheila Frampton-Cooper   •  Martigues, France More Info
NFSThe ocean and its inhabitants, the beach and the sunset are huge influences in my work. All are depicted in this piece using my absolute favorite color combination, blue and orange.  
Wedding in the Wind Wedding in the Wind
Jim Hay   •  Misato Takasaki, Gunma, Japan More Info
$16000   Buy Now  » This piece is the second in my “Five Natural Elements” series. I had recently watched a very windy outdoor wedding from my 9th floor Tokyo hotel room, and this is my interpretation. The fallen priest reveals his skinny legs, the bride’s father loses his wig, and the groom holds onto the ring but lets the bride blow away. I included a self-portrait with my ▶
Creek Drawing #9 Creek Drawing #9
Judy Hooworth   •  Morisset, New South Wales, Australia More Info
NFSMy quilts are about place, in particular Dora Creek which flows near my home. Walking along the creek is part of my routine, integral to my life and artistic practice. I’m interested in patterns…light on water, trees and branches, grasses and leaves, and the changing colors and moods created by variations in the weather day by day.
Blue-Sky Thinking Blue-Sky Thinking
Sara Impey   •  Colchester, United Kingdom More Info
NFSThis quilt is an exercise in empty political rhetoric. The text purports to be a rallying speech by a political candidate who could belong to any political party, since the promises and policies are so commonplace and vague. I wrote the text as I stitched it to fit into the speech bubbles. It is decipherable in its entirety with effort, but I hope that individual phrases - ▶
SYO #32 SYO #32
Harue Konishi   •  Na Ka No-Ku, Tokyo, Japan More Info
SOLD I wanted to take two-dimensional quilts to the next level. However, I did not want to achieve this by creating a concave-convex surface. My idea was to create something that appears flat from which another world could emerge. I let threads hang in front and in back, which created another space below, an unexpected bonus. I wish to explore this technique further.
Keeping Still Keeping Still
Susie Koren   •   Hartfield, United Kingdom More Info
SOLD The starting point for Keeping Still was a piece of cloth inspired by the I Ching or Book of Changes’ hexagram for Keeping Still, Mountain. Working with my interpretation of the hexagram, I created a palette of cloth for the collage that was assembled by hand-stitching.
Round and Round It Goes Round and Round It Goes
Paula Kovarik   •  Memphis, Tennessee, USA More Info
$18800   Buy Now  » Round and round it goes, where it stops nobody knows.  
Translucency and Kaleidoscope Translucency and Kaleidoscope
Judith Larzelere   •   Westerly, Rhode Island, USA More Info
$7500   Buy Now  » After 33 years of using the tools of color theory and intensely saturated colors, I embarked on an exploration of translucency and delicate, ephemeral hints of tone. These are my most mature and refined works to date. With them, I feel a whole new surge of creative imagination and energy.
First Moment First Moment
Gay Lasher   •  Denver, Colorado, USA More Info
$8000   Buy Now  » Noise! Light! Color! Chaos! From nothing to glorious something: First Moment refers to the instant of the Big Bang and the creation of our universe. The colors, lines, and angles suggest the terrific explosive energy of that moment when everything was unformed and possible.
Play of Lines VIII Play of Lines VIII
Uta Lenk   •  Vilsbiburg, Germany More Info
$4500   Buy Now  » When my son started drawing as a toddler, I observed how meticulously he placed his scribbly lines. I was inspired to turn those drawings of his into quilts. Play of Lines VIII is a very literal textile interpretation of one of his drawings that has been enlarged (the original measures about four inches square). The series turned into a long and ongoing exploration of the ▶
Crazed 16:  Suburban Dream Crazed 16: Suburban Dream
Kathleen Loomis   •  Louisville, Kentucky, USA More Info
$10000   Buy Now  » We like to think we’re masters of the universe, but really our civilization is a collection of six billion people held together by an increasingly fragile set of connections. We neglect our children, our poor, and our homeless; we disrespect our government; we overstress the social bonds that should unite us. What happens after some people achieve the suburban dream, ▶
Mended World Mended World
Judith Martin   •   Sheguiandah, Ontario, Canada More Info
NFSThis quilt was made with community assistance as part of the Manitoulin Circle Project.
In the End In the End
Judith Mundwiler   •  Sissach, Switerland More Info
$3400   Buy Now  » My best friend, Susanne Ernst, gave me a poem that she wrote. It is about how a life circle closes.       am ende                                      at the endund was bleibt dem ▶
Language of Frost Language of Frost
Aina Muze   •   More Info
$6850   Buy Now  » This piece is part of my nature series. I have been experimenting with different fabrics, seemingly incompatible, discrepant in their textures. I am trying to reveal the essence of the subject – the processes of nature.  
Annular Eclipse Annular Eclipse
Fumiko Nakayama   •   More Info
NFSI was inspired by an eclipse: a moment of astronomical observation of the sun and the moon. It passed so quickly, and then the show was over. I find constant inspiration from the majesty of our universe.  
 November 2, 2012-February 4, 2013 November 2, 2012-February 4, 2013
Toot Reid   •  Tacoma, Washington, USA More Info
$23000   Buy Now  » I want to convey the depth and subtlety of life, and how parts of our lives fit together to make a whole.
Realization Realization
Karen Rips   •  Thousand Oaks, California, USA More Info
$500   Buy Now  » It is believed that the first sound made by human beings was the Om, which is created by forming the mouth in the shape of an oval. When ritualistically repeated again and again, it is possible for one to come to a true state of consciousness or realization.
Waking Up Waking Up
Judith Rush   •  Columbus, Ohio, USA More Info
$30000   Buy Now  » Waking Up is an exploration of how seemingly disparate parts come together and somehow make sense. The pieces are sewn onto a background one by one, encouraged to interact with one another. The stitching acts to blend shapes and colors as well as to hold all the pieces together. I like the way these heavily-stitched pieces feel in my arms when they are finished.
The Straight and Narrow #1 The Straight and Narrow #1
Denyse Schmidt   •  Bridgeport, Connecticut USA More Info
NFSThe Straight and Narrow #1 is part of a series produced in 2012 exploring linear themes. Lines, stripes, direction and space converge and coalesce to create a meditative study in simplicity. Inspired by and utilizing vintage-inspired ticking stripe linens and cottons are juxtaposed against a solid ground. The misaligning of the horizontal and vertical compositions ▶
Quilt Drawing #9 Quilt Drawing #9
Daphne Taylor   •  Montville, Maine, USA More Info
$10000   Buy Now  » My quilts honor my love of drawing and painting. Hand-quilting is of great importance in my work because it is equivalent to the act of drawing. My hand responds to the shapes in the cloth, creating a rhythm of a shadow line that is simple, clear, and meditative.
Letters from a Friend II Letters from a Friend II
Els van Baarle   •   Dreischor, Netherlands More Info
NFSThis work commemorates the death of a friend. He collected stamps and also the used envelopes. The materials do not have any value, but the memories do.
We We
Elly van Steenbeek   •  Netherlands More Info
$900   Buy Now  » Two parts                            But also commonOne piece ▶
Generated Topology Generated Topology
Kathy Weaver   •   Highland Park, Illinois, USA More Info
$5500   Buy Now  » I use the low-tech tools of loaded airbrush and threaded needle to explore the intersection between technology and art in our 21st century. In Generated Topology, there is a world full of magnified, fantastic organisms. Using this exaggerated scale, I invite viewers to imagine themselves as emotive nanorobots exploring alien environments.
 Sine Me Up Sine Me Up
Kent Williams   •  Madison, Wisconsin, USA More Info
NFSI call this quilt Sine Me Up because the piecing arranges itself into a series of overlapping sine curves. Putting it together required a lot of measuring — down to eighths of an inch — and I had to more or less pray that the thing would hold its shape, but it seems to have worked out okay.
