Houston Quilt Market 2016, part two

Carolyn Friedlander is a quilter and fabric designer and architect, and book author.  wow.
There was a small but very interesting display of her work,

sorry about the spotlights shining right on the quilts, 
as you can see, she really uses applique effectively.  She has been a proponent of "slow quilting", where you just enjoy the process, even if it includes a bunch of hand stitching, 
on the right side of the photo below are swarches of the fabrics she has designed for Rober Kaufman fabrics, 

on the left is a small reverse applique quilt superimposed over a swath of the same fabric used in the quilt, 
these are some colored drawings she did that are realized in fabric in the quilt below, 
the finished quilt is in the center, surrounded by the individual parts shown as they are during the process
this is another of her very well known quilts, 
a close-up of some of the quilting,
