There is no doubt that is show is of the highest skill level of quilting and each quilt is a painting using cloth and thread as opposed to a covering for a bed. It appears to be highly selected with just the best of the best on display. There is a large selection of works that are made from fabric printed by the artist which is becoming more and more common. Those works now have to make an extra effort as the thrill of the new is now waning. As the medium becomes more accepted as fine art, the challenge is to compete at the same level as painting. Some do this, some are simply tour de force of technique.

Leslie A. Hall - this quilt says " It is my imagination or is having a sense of irony in short supply right now."  How fitting that you can see this show at OMA at the same time as the
Spitting In The Wind: Art From the End of the Line exhibition of conceptual works in the next gallery
