So, Bill do you have any details of provenance to share about these wonderful "vertical" strip quilts? I guess they are strip or bar quilts and my comments are uninformed by wide experience, but here they are anyway: #1 is indeed Awesome (is it some highly sophisticated variant of an Amish quilt?). #2 puts me in mind of an LSD trip (I know that dates me) and I just want to fall into it and wonder what kind of fabric it is that gives it that amazing flowing, billowing fullness? #3 most interests me because it seems to be made from a coordinated "collection" of fabrics in different color ways, which I thought were a very recent trend--so is it young in age? #4 looks like Hawaiian shirt fabric that could be rayon and I really admire the watery look of the center bars and I can't tell on computer screen but it doesn't look quilted and almost ripply--is it tied or what?And Oh Wow #5 just makes me laugh out loud every time I look at it! Talk about self confidence and joie de vivre! If I could meet the maker of only one of the five it would be #5. Katie S.
P.S. I was enjoying all five of them so much I rudely forgot to say thank you very much for your generosity in sharing them. What a treat for your readers!
