Tall Grass at Atlanta Quilt Festival

Tall Grass by Nina Moore

The featured quilt of the week in the July 25, 2010 edition of the Start Your Week With a Quilt newsletter is called Tall Grass, and it was created by Nina Moore. This quilt, along with approximately 50 other quilts and dolls, will be part of the 2010 Atlanta Quilt Festival sponsored by the Clara Ford Foundation and Hammonds House Museum. The Atlanta Quilt Festival will be held August 1 -13 at the South Fulton Arts Center,  located at 4645 Butner Road, College Park, GA.

Nina says this quilt was inspired by  a painting she saw on a friend’s wall. She used applique techniques to interpret the painting on fabric. Then she embellished the quilt with beads and shells to bring the quilt alive.
 
In addition to exhibiting her beautiful work during the Atlanta Quilt Festival, Nina will also teach a Beginning Quilting class August 11, 2010. The class is free, but space is limited. Email ovbrant@gmail.com for more information or to sign up. You can start your quilting journey at the Atlanta Quilt Festival!
