The woman in red was made by Jane Kennedy. I was interested in this because of the Erte fabric she used--I had seen that and loved it but didn't know what I would do with it, so resisted buying it. I also like the circle background quilting and the overall effect of the piece, which is simple, but makes you keep looking. The man leaning against the tree is by Marilyn Belford, and I thought the realism of the clothing was exceptional and the face is also memorable. The portrait of Pauline Salzman playing cards is by Julie Higgins. Usually portrait quilts don't convey much of the subject's personality, but this one does. I'll post some of the more traditional quilts that I liked next time, but I somehow didn't take as many pictures of those.
