Hi all.....our Goof Balls group took a field trip to see the African American quilts at the Bellevue Art Museum....and was it GREAT!! There was a fabulous collection of great quilts, some of which could be "modern art" paintings...and not to mention the great Lone Star quilt. I am definitely going to copy that great old treasure. These quilts were from a collection....artists unknown. I really enjoyed them all, and some were just too wonderful. Thanks to the museum for letting me post some of the pictures of those fabulous quilts. I hope you enjoy seeing a few of these masterpieces. Judy
Hello, my name is Judy Irish, and I am a fabric/quil-taholic. I started out quite normal, and not addicted until after graduating from Michigan State University in 1964. With a degree in English/art, I soon began getting involved in all kinds of shady activities….drawing, tole painting, oil painting, jewelry making, stained glass, and on and on. There was little going on in the quilt world at that time, but I managed to do wall hangings, some quilts and fabric art gifts for friends and such, but could never quite get rid of my cravings for this terrible temptation. Over the next 20 years or so I kept things under control with occasional quilt shows and projects….but thankfully my busy schedule of teaching did not allow me to run amok completely.
I hope you will tune in to my blog to see what I have been up to!
