Artistry and craft are blended together in the AQS Authors’ Showcase. AQS provides a platform to view quilts, projects, and demonstrations. The displays features the latest books form well0known authors. You will find interactive opportunities as AQS authors demonstrate their techniques.
World Painters Challenge
In 1995, a group of twelve patchwork lovers in various regions of Japan formed the Nihon Heritage Quilters Guild. This group participates in an annual quilt challenge, and every few years, the challenge is extended to include other nations.
The World Painters Challenge began in 2013. A list of 30 world-famous painters was chosen, and that list was given to a group of quilters from Japan, France, and the U.S. One painter was assigned to each of 30 quilters in each nation, and each quilter was challenged to design and execute a piece of fiber art either representing a work of their painter or making a design of their choice in the style of that painter. This exhibit is designed to compare the techniques and styles between the nations in representing the work of each famous painter. This exhibit will be touring the AQS QuiltWeek events in 2016. Linda Steller and her sister, Ginny Steller, became the US coordinators of the World Painters challenge in 2013.
