2012 International Quilt Festival / Cincinnati

This is the second year the Spring IQA show was held in Cincinnati, Ohio. The "Artist Village" was a special show within the show in which a group of artists, invited by Kathy York, created a fantasy village out of fabric and various quilting techniques. Who wouldn't want to live there?

A small selection of my favorite art quilts were in the special show titled "Good For You":

Kiss by Jo Dixey

Dixie Dingo Dreaming by Susan E. Carlson

Electric Faerie of the Getty Garden by Sheila Frampton-Cooper
Other favorite quilts were from the "World of Beauty" collection:

Artichokes in Bloom by Andrea Brokenshire

Checks & Balances by Caryl Bryer Fallert

Tiny Town by Karen Eckmeier

(This quilt is a miniature approximately 15" x 15", Karen wants to "go smaller").
