Quilt Odyssey.

This is one of those Shows that does not permit photos to be shown on the internet.  : /  However, I took some pix of quilts that were in other Shows that do allow photos to be posted. So…sew, here are some close-ups of Sieglinde’s Once Upon A Christmas Night quilt…  You can see my original post from Houston here.  Enjoy!

My blog has gotten quite a few hits on Sieglinde’s Once Upon a Christmas Night post and since I’ve been working with photos here, I got to thinking about Sieglinde’s Mother Earth and Her Children quilt…?!  As I previously mentioned, I was at the Houston Quilt Festival the year that quilt took top honors.  Hmmm, I MUST have a picture of it somewhere.  Yeh, on my dead laptop and even dead-er camera.  Oooh, wait!  Photobucket?!  So, here it is!!!  Downloaded from Photobucket then uploaded here.  Let’s see how/if this works…?!

Once Upon a Christmas Night

Because you have asked…

by SIEGLINDE SCHOEN SMITH

This quilt is also an Advent calendar.  MANY of the doors, windows, and pieces fold open to reveal a number or a little hidden surprise.  There is even a hand stitched doll tucked into a satchel that is removable.  MUCH to look at and discover with this quilt!!!  Do you see the similarities between this quilt and Sieglinde’s “Mother Earth and Her Children” quilt?!  ; )

I had the opportunity to be a Quilt Angel for the Mother Earth quilt when it won in Houston in 2006.  Lord have mercy!  : )  And, I had dinner with Sieglinde at Ninfa’s the night before I angeled.  Sieglinde has an affiliation with the family that makes/made Hummels.  Can you see that in her work?  She also designed and stitched costumes for rodeo in the past.  I think these colorful influences can be seen in her work.  Neat-o, huh?!  Enjoy!

P.S.  She has stitched some little red hearts on the back of this quilt.  Sweet!
