Judith Reilly at the Shelburne Museum shop

While visiting the Shelburne Museum in South Burlington, I was very taken with the delightful art quilts available for sale in the gift shop.

Judith Reilly makes whimsical rural landscapes using fabric. Judith is based in Brandon, Vermont, and is clearly inspired by the red barns and green fields of her home state.

Two of the pieces I saw were bound in the conventional way, mounted invisibly on foam core to lift them from the backing, then double matted and framed under glass. The piece shown above is presented in the same way but without the double matting.

If you visit her website, you'll see that Judith also sells giclée prints and greeting cards based on her art quilts. Charming.
