Art quilts

Today I attended a convocation at Berea College, Hollis Chatelaine gave a lecture and slide presentation, it was totally amazing! Her newest piece was unveiled "Hope For Our World"

her quilts are painted in one color family using about 8 shades and then she uses hundreds of colors of thread with the most incrediable quilting.

The piece here is Titled "Precious Water" Hollis's works express her feelings on Worldwide social and environmental issues.

Betty, so glad you are having a blog!!! I have admired your work on various Yahoo groups over the years! I got to meet Hollis Chatelaine a couple of years ago when she was the featured quilter at the Paducah museum during the quilt show. Her work literally moved me to tears--absolutely stunning. Best wishes on your blog! (Vera in KC)
