Walls of Wittenberg – Line of Design Exhibit

Leave a comment

Our “Connecting Thread – a Line of Design” challenge was displayed at the W.O.W. gallery in Wittenberg, WI from January 19th to February 10th, 2013. This group of quilts is hung in a unique way. The rules stated that the each quilt needed to be 36″ square with a red line running through it that entered and exited  the sides of the quilt either 12″ from the top or bottom edge. Those were the only criteria the fiber art pieces had in common and the quilts are hung staggered so the “lines” in between remain horizontal. This resulted in a very diverse collection of quilts. The gallery space in Wittenberg was a delightful venue. Here are a few pictures from the exhibit:
