The grand opening of the Kapitoil quilts exhibit was so much fun! All of these quilts are inspired by the book, Kapitoil, by Teddy Wayne. As you'll see below the quilts are all very different! Above is my quilt and yours truly.
By Diane Ottenfeld- This one is inspired by the Jackson Pollock paintings mentioned in the book. The words are from lists made by the main character as he tried to perfect his English skills.
By Jerry Lindstrom- This quilt was inspired by a racquetball scene in the book.
By Jan Tetzlaff- This one has a quote from the book about the night time stars.
By Pris Brubaker- Hawks are a symbol in the book.
By Marilyn Ulrich
By Linda Mulholland- This is the other one based on a Beatles song. This time it's about the song Julia which is the song most important to the main character.
By Mary Ann Lisk. I didn't get to read the tag on this one. I guess I'll have to go back and take my time looking at everything!
By Gayle Gassner- Depicts New York City and has lots of words quilted in.
By Jean Egle- Depicts clashing of cultures.
By Betty Vincent- Another one inspired by Jackson Pollock.
By Erin Biskup- This one depicts the main character's questions about many influences in his life.
By Judy Johnson- Inspired by Mondrian, another artist that the main character is influenced by. Notice this totally fabulous New York subway fabric!
By Janice Clayton- This is a representation of New York City from above- buildings and city blocks.
