Wendel George Brown - 7 feet quilts

Have you visited Wendel George Brown's website? This Newport News, VA native is also a quilter, painter, and sculptor.

Wendel has a series of quilts based on spirituals. The quilt here is 7 feet by 7 feet! You can see others in his series on his website. Earlier this year I and a few quilting Sistahs visited his studio. I was FLOORED at the scale of Wendel's quilts. You should see the three- dimensional quilts he has - there's one featuring a family dinner. You just want to pick up a fork from the quilt and start eating!

Can't wait to see more from Wendel!

Where are the three dimensional quilts?
I really liked the quilts I saw.
