This past week, Linda Cantrell visited my guild and gave a 45 minute talk about her wonderful, comic approach to quilting.
I first noticed Linda’s quilts MANY years ago at the Houston Quilt Festival when this quilt caught my attention….
I remember spend 15 minutes looking at this quilt, taking in all of the details and enjoying the humorous aspects of the quilt.
As she showed her many quilts, I was truly amazed at the details that she included in each quilt. Have a look at this one…..
One of my favorite pieces was a story quilt of Sunbonnet Sue, starting with her shotgun wedding to Overall Sam, and ending with a true “Cliff Hanger” where she falls off of a cliff and is holding onto a tree branch as a UFO targets her….
As wonderful as her quilts were, her delivery was even better. We interrupted her several times with applause and all came away with a happy, content feeling about the art of quilting!!!
If you ever have the chance to attend one of her lectures, DO NOT MISS IT!!!!
