About the Event
Join the collector Roderick Kiracofe for a gallery tour of the quilts hanging in his current exhibition at Hello Stitch Studio.
The orange circle quilt on the poster for this show hung on the wall of Roderick Kiracofe's Quilt Barn for quite awhile. The “worn-ness” of the binding and its overall softness shows it was washed and used often. It was fun to look at it and the bright orange color gave it boldness, but in Roderick's mind, other quilts in his collection outshone it. Not until he posted it on Instagram and received an overwhelming response in likes and comments, did he come to see it in a new light. He looked through the collection and discovered others that had various amounts of orange fabrics scattered through or used prominently.
And so, the Orange show was conceived! What better color to follow his previous Hello Stitch exhibition, RED, than with the bold and beautiful color ORANGE?
