World Quilt New England at the Radisson Center of New Hamsphire, August 17-19, 2017, will have an amazing collection of special exhibitions on display. This year, several New England based guilds are taking part in WQNE in the best way they know – by creating quilts. There will be a lot of beauty, talent and fabric in one room. WQNE is proud to include these special exhibitions.
One Woman Show: Barbara Barrick McKie
Barbara Barrick McKie has been fascinated with sewing, nature, and photography since high school. Her first original art quilt was created in 1971. In 1994, she created her first digital quilt and have been doing so ever since, printing her own fabric. Many of Barbara’s quilts are inspired by her trips around the world, and the animals and plants on her property. She photographs animals and nature, uses free-motion applique and quilting, and often uses trapunto & thread painting. (Pictured: Crested Barbet – yes, this really is a quilt!)
Wicked Good Art Quilts – SAQA Vermont-New Hampshire-Maine
New Englanders describe things as wicked, whether they are very good or very bewitching. New England SAQA artists were invited to create an art quilt displaying their finest – or rather – their wicked good art quilts. The exhibit showcases the diversity of style and techniques used by New England SAQA artists. (Pictured: Birds Relaxing Badly Again by Stephanye Schuyler)
World Quilt New England is generously sponsored by Olde City Quilts, Innova, Handi Quilter and Bits ‘n Pieces.
