Here are the pictorial quilts that I took photos of at the Smoky Mountain Quilt Guild Show this past weekend.
"Cockadoodle Ewe" by Sheila Rauen of Knoxville was awarded 2nd Place in Wall Quilts Mixed Techniques. Sheila works with wool and silk fabrics. She needle punches design elements in her compositions.
"Pug O My Heart" by Sheila Rauen of Knoxville awarded 2nd Place in Small Art Category. She also hand paints design elements."Emily" by Jean Loussarian of Westminister, South Carolina entered into the Pictorial Category. There are about 80 pieces of fabric in the dress."Treasured Memories" by Tone Haugen-Cogburn of Maryville, Tennessee was awarded 2nd Place in the Small Art Category. Features a snapshot of her father when he was a boy."Sea Maiden" by Pat Kumicich of Naples, Florida awarded an Honorable Mention in the Pictorial Category.
"Geisha" by Jan Was of Venore, Tennessee entered in the Pictorial Category. By appliqueing Japanese silk and cottons, attention is focused on the layers of kimonos on the shoulders of the geisha.
"The Woods Are Lovely, Dark, and Deep" by Sherrie Groman of Columbus, Mississippi entered in the Pictorial Category. This view was inspired from a window.
"Water's Edge" by Leigh Elking of Scottsdale, Arizona entered in the Pictorial Category. She used hand-painted and commercial fabrics. It's embellished with specialty fabrics, threads, and beads.
