Last week The Folsom Quilt and Fiber Guild held their annual quilt show in Folsom, California. I was most interested in viewing the "art quilts" that the guild is quite famous for and so as I walked through I snapped a few photos of things that I was impressed with. My header is an example of some of the quilts that I photographed.

The header is inspired by Wayne Thiebaud's painting of the Sacramento Delta. The group that made it had "a slice" challenge which meant that they had to cut it into three pieces and each person created one "slice".  Amazing work, especially if you are familiar with Wayne Thiebaud's work. He is quite an extraordinary painter himself. There was another one that was inspired by "River and Farms".


  1. Beautiful quilts. Some people have very nifty fingers. Not me.

    As an aside,a friend of mine chose to be Frida Kahlo for Halloween a couple of years ago. The end result was a spitting image of Frida right up to the uni-brow. The funniest part about it was that my friend was a guy :)

  2. Oh, just awesome. Is there somewhere I could order a Frida quilt? I love this.

  3. Wow! That is some true artistic work showing in that quilt.

  4. wow they really nailed the details in there....i esp love the header...but that one of the lady is just remarkable...

  5. You have given us all something to contemplate...this Frida work is spectacular. Blessings, Mary Helen Fernandez Stewart

  6. Gloria---I'm not sure this quilt was for sale but you could probably contact the Folsom Quilt and Fiber Guild at their website at: and ask Paula Beck, the maker, if she would sell or make one for you. You never know. I know so much time goes into things like this.

    1. That header photo of a quilt is amazing. Love the idea. I would love a quilt like this.
      Have always love Freda Kahlo and her paintings. That someone did a quilt of her is amazing. Such talent.
