Quilters sew inspired visions at Clark County showcase

first_imgA great deal of admiration made its way through the 43rd annual Clark County Quilters quilt show Saturday as quilters and onlookers studied intricate lines, color choice and unique works of art all tied together with one central idea.The show’s theme, once in a blue moon, asked participants to draw on a rare celestial occasion for inspiration.Featured quilter Lynn Czaban drew from the lighter side of the theme. Her self-portrait, all in blue, played on a bright idea only occurring once in a blue moon. Her bright idea was that she had inspiration for the quilt to begin with.Czaban is known for her portrait quilts, several of which were on display at this year’s show held at the Clark County Event Center at the Fairgrounds. Czaban said she saw her first portrait quilt in 2005 and hasn’t looked back since.“This has been really one of those happy accidents that has opened up a whole opportunity for me to teach and give presentations and I just really have enjoyed it,” she said.Portrait quilts on display feature her interpretation of the “Mona Lisa,” “Girl with a Pearl Earring” and “American Gothic,” among several other famous works of art.last_img
