Madame and I recently had the opportunity to attend the International Quilt Show in Dubai, organised by Classic Quilts Dubai.
You don’t have to be a quilter in order to appreciate the talent and effort that goes into producing these works of art. And for a photographer, there’s a whole world of colour and pattern to admire, enjoy and seek to capture.
There is also texture and that’s what I’ve focused (sic) on here. These photographs show some of the detailed work in a selection of the quilts that were on display. They stand alone as images, but they also give a further impression of the extent of the work involved in the quilting process.
Images of the quilts in their entirety can be found by following the link to Classic Quilts Dubai provided above, or on their Facebook page.
