International Quilt Festival…. how big is it?

And the last two videos from the International Quilt Festival I’m going to share here are just fun little clips I’ve edited together so that you can get a feel for what happens there. It’s big. It’s really big.

You can see the rest of the video interviews from IQF 2018 on my youtube channel.

IQF Award Winner Interviews

Whew. You all are amazing… have I told you that before? You kept me hopping BIG TIME over Black Friday. I think I’ll do it again next year. In the meantime… here are some more video interviews from the International Quilt Festival.

The Pfaff Master Award for Machine Artistry

Sponsored by Pfaff Sewing Machines

by Ximo Navarro Sirera
of Canals, Valencia, Spain

Mr. Sirera is a lovely and gentle man. I stood around long enough to find someone to translate for me. His work was well deserving of the award. He told me he’d only been quilting for 5 years. This treasure took two years to create. It was his “distraction” while he underwent treatment for cancer. We are so glad he is still with us.


The Gammill Master Award for Contemporary Artistry

Sponsored by Gammill

Velvet Flowers
by Linda Anderson
of La Mesa, California, United States

I didn’t get the chance to talk to Linda Anderson but her husband, Steven Gadon, who was manning the white gloves when I stopped by and was happy to chat about this spectacular piece of work.

Enjoy the work of these two artists!
