Inspired Settings

Recently David Owen Hastings hosted a presentation: Inspired Settings, a conversation with Matt Macomber, our mutual friend from Seattle MQGThey chatted about several quilts in Matt's current exhibit at our local Pacific Northwest Quilt & Fiber Arts Museum. It was really interesting, and I enjoyed seeing and hearing more about Matt's modern vintage style, as well as seeing some of his collection of vintage quilts. Luckily, the event was recorded, in case you'd like to watch too.

 


I was pleased to be able to see the exhibit myself last weekend.

I'm happy to show you just a few of the 27(!) quilts on display, choosing to share ones made by Matt himself, along with his artist's statement for each.

This is just a tiny selection of the many wonderful quilts in the exhibit. If you're local, it's definitely worth the drive to La Connor to see the exhibit at the museum housed in the former Gaches Mansion. It's only there until July 4!
