A little more from Thailand Quilt Festival 2014

Last Fri, I joined one of workshops held in the quilt festival. It is called "The Imaginary Stream" led by Lakkana Jones, who is the first generation quilter in Thailand. I found that this workshop was different from others, which generally used common techniques. That was why I registered this one.

The instructor introduced us the art quilting which has been gaining popularity in modern quilt today. Beside of traditional techniques, painting, dyeing, collage and more approaches are used to create the quilt.

I'm a bit disappointed that the workshop was only 3 hours long. Absolutely, we couldn't finish this work within such little time. Anyway, I got to know the quilt work in new way and encouraged to learn those new techniques.

Below are some more pics that I took from the quilt show.
