Quiltcon 2017 -- part 2

More photos from Quiltcon.  I'll start with a set that all have a sense of illusion to them.

"Vertigo" by Elaine Poplin
Third place, Piecing

"i Spy" by Cassandra Beaver

Trivia question -- what do the previous two quilts have in common (other than the fact that I have met both makers)?

"Hyperspeed" by Amy Ellis
(Nine-patch Challenge)

"ViewPoint" by Shruti Dandekar
(Small Quilts)

"Dimension" by Nydia Kehnle; quilted by Gina Pina
(Minimalist Design)

 "Mod Blocks 2.0" by Betsy Vinegrad
Third Place, Minimalist Design

 "Handcrafted" by Jennifer Johnston

"Housetop in Black and White" by Kathleen Robertson

"Reflective Windows"

[My photo of the info card is blurry; can anyone identify the maker for me?]

"Transparency Quilt 1" by Melissa Everett
(Use of Negative Space)

"Ocean Waves" by Kristi Schroeder; quilted by Melissa Eubanks
(Modern Traditionalism)

There were three quilts in the show which played with transparency effects and churn dash blocks.  It was interesting to see three takes on a similar idea -- and they also reminded me of a certain star-based transparency quilt. :)
