OH MY most impressive - MOI impressive??!


Oh, My!

"Most impressive, however, is South Carolina quilter Margaret Hunt's illusionistic "Lady Nolly." From a distance, it looks like a classic portrait by some Baroque master -- Thomas Gainsborough, maybe, or Sir Joshua Reynolds. Closer inspection shows it for its true mastery, as a complex mix of fiber, stitching, painting and applique. The elegance of its concept and techniques alone make "Lady Nolly" outstanding; what takes it to another level entirely comes from its subtitle, and all that means"

Sounds like Maggie stole the show for the reporter! :-)

Considering Quilts 2006 is on the front page of the Travel & Arts section
of the Daytona Beach News Journal today. The article was written by Laura
Stewart, an award winning fine arts critique.

Margaret

This is a wonderful review and you must be feeling very excited to be recognised in such a way. For a non USA citizen what is the significance of the title "Lady Nolly"?
