Winners of the Rust-Tex Collection

The Rust-Tex Collection had 112 quilts entered by 80 people from all over the world. Entries came from Australia, Israel, Canada, New Zealand, Sweden, and Belgium. The majority were from the USA. The only International entry to be juried into the Rust-Tex Collection was "Rust Rest" by Els Vereycken of Belgium.
Rust Rest
During childhood Els watched as her mother made and designed, hats and clothes. Els always sewed, but mostly she collected pieces of fabric to use later on in some sort of combination. Her study of science, job and family left little time to work on all of her fantasies. As soon as she retired from teaching biology, she threw all of her energy into making art quilts.
Rust Rest Detail
Machine raw edge applique, rusted cotton fabric, commercial fabrics, free-motion machine quilting.
Els says, "Time flies so fast, I don’t have enough of it to fullfil all the dreams I have."
She shows her art quilts in national and international exhibitions.
I am so glad Els entered The Rust-Tex Collection!!!
She is a member of Q.Art.Belgium. Here is a link to their very cool site:
