Feather Your Nest with Quilts
2016 Quilt Challenge by the Quilters’ Sew-ciety of Redding, Inc., Redding, CA
(Oklahoma City, OK)

Birds have been featured in literature, culture and art since prehistoric times, when they were represented in early cave paintings.

We wanted to celebrate our feathered friends by featuring them on quilts. "Feather Your Nest with Quilts" is an exhibit with 48 quilts featuring a bird-related theme made by quilters from the Quilters’ Sew-ciety of Redding, Inc. in Redding, California. Their interpretations range from realistic, to whimsical, and even humorous quilts.

With almost 10,000 species of birds in the world, one only has to look around and birds can be found. Birds also play prominent and diverse roles in folklore, literature, religion, and popular culture. With some fun bird facts included, we hope you enjoy this exhibit and the creative work of our quilters.

The Cutting Edge of Contemporary Art Quilts
(Oklahoma City, OK)

Exhibit Concept: "The Cutting Edge of Contemporary Art Quilts". This exhibit will showcase the transformative outcome when art quilts are made from innovative layers of cloth, fiber, image transfer, paint and stitch.

The show will demonstrate how diverse materials and techniques transmute cloth into a work of art. The artists will utilize a variety of surface design approaches, including photography, mixed media, weaving, stitching, and painting to creating representational, abstract and non-representational artwork.

The viewers will experience a wide range of quilted art on the cutting edge.

The mission of the QOV Foundation is to cover ALL war wounded and injured service members and veterans from the War on Terror with donated wartime quilts.
