Cherrywood Fabrics challenged quilters to take inspiration from artist Bob Ross and to create unique quilts using a limited color palette of their gorgeous hand dyed fabrics. Artists were encouraged to push themselves creatively, think outside the box and create new fiber art. We are pleased to have this exhibit as part of our Quiltfest.
The exhibit features 54 quilts made primarily by Utah and SW Washington Quilters. Each of the 54 quilts will represent one card in a deck - plus 2 joker cards.
Creative Wearables, a group of fiber artists focused on the wonderful world of wearable art, emphasizes creating handmade pieces of clothing and accessories designed as expressive art. Garments and accessories include upcycled, new, and “themed” challenges. Members may participate in runway shows, exhibits, and learn techniques throughout the year, as well as share ideas and their wearable art during meetings.

The Art Quilt Group was formed in 2005 and includes a collection of immensely talented women who are willing and happy to share their expertise. We have learned and experimented with fabrics, paints, beads, yarns, stamps, buttons, metal, paper, cord, bleach, and inks. And we’ve had so much fun in the process.
The group will exhibit pieces inspired by their challenges.Poster by Second Story Gallery.

2020 Challenge by Linda Clasey
The TEMQ challenge this year was “thread painting.” All members used the same background fabric and fused the same vase pattern in a color of grunge fabric of their choice. Any kind of thread painting completed the designs.
