    Thanks for posting the link. I wish we could make the images larger to see the detail. Actually, I wish I could see them in person. Well, to be perfectly honest, I wish I could do that level of work. So impressive!

    Fantastic quilts, thanks for posting the link. Like others, I would really have liked a close up of even just a part of each one, so that a little bit of the details could be seen.

    Wow!!! You can make the images larger...just click on the thumbnail, then zoom in by clicking on the little 100% in the bottom right corner of your screen or use the down arrow to select what size to zoom.

    Bellaboo, thank you so much for that link, these were the most fantastic quilts. I loved the ones made by ladies in Japan and I was so pleased to see the 2nd place winner was English. Of couse the American quilts were fantastic, loved them all.

    Do they ship their quilts in? I bet that is expensive but if you win all that money, it's worth it. Thanks Ms Bella

    Caryl Bryer Fallert continues to amaze and delight with her style and and growth. She's not content to stand still! She keeps pushing the frontiers farther and farther. I could see quite a bit of detail in the picture, and it makes me wonder how much more I could see in person? Some day - - -

    Thank you soooooooo much for posting the link!

    I read an article about the bigger quilt shows not drawing the American quilters like it use to. It quoted some quilters saying the out of country quilts were juried in over American quilters to give the show the international sponsorship. I know I've read bits and pieces about the controversy of the juried big shows and how any art quilt will win over any traditional type quilt. I go to Paducah and the quilts are fantastic in person. Most that are in Houston are in Paducah. That's the end of the quilt circuit for the big show winning quilts because the bigger prize money is given only if the the quilt is donated to the museum.

    I've often wondered how much of the shows and awards are acutally political. I took a class from someone who does lots of judging. During the class I asked her about how it works and if that is true.. She said that sometimes a well know quilter may actually get penalized...her work may be recognizeable and they may think it is great...but not up to her/his "par"...I don't know about her response on that...whether that actually happens. What you said Bella about the out of country quilts getting in over the American quilts...hmmm...something else to think about. I don't really need to worry much as I will just enjoy looking at them either way...MY quilts won't ever be there! :roll:
