Festival Gallery of Quilt Art: HOME sponsored by Alexander Henry Fabrics

In honor of Quilt Market’s 35th anniversary we happily sponsored this year’s Festival Gallery Quilt Art: HOME competition where quilters from around the globe were invited to interpret the meaning of home through the art of quilting.  We would like to congratulate the winner of the HOME category, Betty Busby of Albuquerque, New Mexico, who created the stunning quilt, “Home on the Reef.”  We also took a particular shine to the work of Vicki Conley, “Conflagration, Desolation, Rejuvenation, Jubilation,” in which she contemplates the phases of desolation and rebirth when a forest fire threatened her mountain home.  And we heard a little Frank Sinatra (“I’ve got the world on a string…”) when we happened upon Christine Alexiou’s “Little Blue Planet,” a beautiful piece that underscores the idea of Earth as home for all humanity.  Congratulations to all the quilters who were included in this amazing display of quilt art!
