The tactile nature of the medium and theme of the quilts holds universal appeal.
What happens when quilters from all over the world use the same fabric, same colors, and same inspiration? In the case of the Van Gogh Challenge, the answer is 465 small quilts and a jaw-dropping collection of fiber art!
The Alliance was formed in 1993 to encourage art quilters and garment artists; currently there are approximately 120 members in the suburban Chicago group.
Sunset on water, an illuminated manuscript, fireflies at night, a rose window, the solar eclipse, a computer motherboard, an Edward Hopper painting—wonder what these have in common? They are among the diverse images that inspired the 21 art quilts in Illumination, the Professional Art Quilt Alliance 2018 challenge.
