La Conner Quilt & Textile Museum

There are always great shows at the La Conner Quilt & Textile Museum in La Conner, Washington.  I just saw the show that features Ann Fahl's work.  There are so many of her pieces that is was fun to see how prolific she is.  Many of the pieces have been shown in her two books but seeing them in person is a real treat.  Her thread work is amazing!  Check out this close up.

Here's another close up of how she uses multi-colored threads and some of her patterning.  Very cool!

I liked this one with the vase as well.  Having done a piece with a vase, ans now starting a new one, it was interesting to see how she handled the subject using a sheer fabric.
