Carol Taylor's Trunk Show

If you get a chance to go to her lecture/ trunk show DO! It's great!
She did a slide show that lasted about a half an hour and then had a show and tell of some thirty fabulous quilts.

This was one of her Gong class sample.

These are two more gong class samples with small pieced borders.

The arc I texture quilts. LOVED these! She tells how to make these on her EXCELLENT quilting arts video. I highly recommend her video! Terrific instructions.

She shows how to couch and to do the defaced bindings. She doesn't like raw edges or bound art quilts.

Judy Lockhart holding one of the arc I texture quilts. The pictures don't do them justice...they twinkle with all kinds of sequined fabrics.
The second class quilt.....couching.

The lecture.
Sorry the pics are not better. Somebody should have turned off the slide show!

This is Carol Taylor(left) holding the beige to brown arc I texture quilt.

Tari Griggs holding the yellow to dark blue arc I texture quilt.

Carol is the piecing queen! This huge quilt is pieced and each of the small shapes are neatly appliqu├ęs down with satin stitch! All hand dyed fabrics that she mostly dyes.

Odd pieced shapes...really red and black

One of here many gong quilts. Dark blue to lights. Large to small.

Tiny strips pieced together to make squares. Amazing quilts!

Another one made of tiny stripped pieces.

And another!

A detail!

The back where she interspersed satin stitch with straight stitch while quilting.

Ok I liked this one so much I posted it twice! Sort of a Gee Bends on steroids....but oh so square and neat!

A triptych

Made from sheers. This one won a first place or best of show at AQS.

Leaves. Ever so neatly, precisely with the most beautiful satin stitched!

Another beautiful satin stitched leaf quilt.

A jillion little pieces. Wish I knew how long it took her to sew this huge monster together!

Her famous Coral Reef quilt from the late 1990s. Gorgeous thread painting. For a price it can be yours!!
