Fiber Art Divas Show: 2016

Following hot on the heels of my trip to Expo in Schaumburg on Saturday, Sunday afternoon found me at the Fiber Art Divas Annual Art Show at the Naperville Fine Art Center and Gallery.

The team had made a lovely job of hanging the show.

This was Jan Rajek’s Fall Risk series. So much fun!img_0265Moving along the wall I spy my Bleu, Blanc et Rouge Paris quilt.img_0281Three red pieces made a super grouping. Works by Laurie Peters (top left), Yvette Thorn (bottom left) and Linda Kurcz (The Art of the Boot)…img_0268Not just quilts. Woven vest, Return to Wake Robin, from Susan Chemler
img_0272Little dolls in wooden boxes, Seasons,  from Susan Chemler again.img_0274Lovely beading and embellishment deserve a closer look.

That’s my Long and Winding Road mini quilt at the top right.img_0282Today’s featured image shows some lovely hand appliqué from Dorothy Larsen alongside my Ever Onwards and Upwards, and Sunny Day wall hanging.

Lots to look at!

I was scheduled to give an English Paper Piecing Demo before the end of the afternoon, hexagons and clamshells.fullsizerender-2

It’s not too late to go and see all the quilts. They are on display until November 5th. Wednesday, Thursday, Friday, noon until 4.00 pm and Saturdays, 10 AM until 4.00 pm. at the Naperville Art League. Parking is behind the building or on the street. It would be an hour very well spent.
