Quilt exhibition


OK by some strange quirk I am today able to access Blogger and post myself so I am making the most of it to show you some pics from a quilt exhibition I went to last week with the handicrafts group here in Almaty.
The gallery was not the most salubrious looking from the outside but inside was a different story.
The artist whose exhibition it was is called VERA SHERBAKOVA, she was born here in Kazakhstan but now lives and works in Moscow. This was her first exhibition in her native country.
The above pics are of her George and the Dragon quilt. It seems George and the Dragon is a universal theme, not just used as the patron saint of England!!


Interesting detail on another quilt, threads wrapped around sticks..............mmmm can see that idea being used!!

The St George quilt is stunning isn't it! I can't even sew a button on a shirt without getting into difficulties. The threads on sticks looks interesting, can't wait to see what you do with that in the future Sue.
