Soft Summer Gone at Riffe Gallery in Ohio, the Quilt National 17 tour

Soft Summer Gone, plant dyed silk quilt, hand quilted with embroidery stitches, 100 inches by 100 inches, winner of two awards for surface design at Quilt National 2017.
Jane Forrest Redfern (director of the Dairy Barn art gallery in Athens Ohio, host of Quilt National) spoke about the quilts in the exhibition at the opening on January 25, 2018.  Soft Summer Gone appears at approximately the 32 minute mark of this 45 minute video.    Jane said that it reminded her of a chenille quilt from her childhood.  She remarked that it was hand stitched in a hoop.
Quilt National 17 is on exhibit at The Ohio Art Council's Riffe Gallery until April 14, 2018.
