• Form, Not Function 4 - pictorial

    1 month ago - By Art With a Needle

    This year's FNF had only a few pictorial quilts, two of which won awards. One of those awards was the one given by my small quilt support group, River City Fiber Artists, which meant that I got to visit the museum early and choose.
    Longtime readers will recall that I generally dislike pictorial quilts as a genre, especially portraits. I have long felt that fabric is not a good medium to depict photographically realistic images, but this year I had to admit that the quilt winning the RCFA award is perhaps the best portrait quilt I've ever seen.
