Gates in Chicago
Often at a quilt show there will be an unintention common thread between quilts. Sometimes its a fabric or a motif or a subject. The quilt show in Chicago was no exception. There were many pieces, many of them in the Journal Quilt section, that featured the Gates of Central Park by Christo. There are lots of pictures of the project on the web. I photographed a few of quilts made about and with pieces of the gates.
These examples are by Susan Madden of Austin, Texas (top) Gloria Hansen of Hightstown NJ (middle) and Magarete Steinhauer of Seituate, Mass. (bottom)
