Think of the In­ter­na­tional Quilt Fes­ti­val, which con­tin­ues Satur­day and Sun­day at the Ge­orge R. Brown Con­ven­tion Cen­ter, as a dif­fer­ent kind of art show.

Its quilt­mak­ers use large can­vases of cot­ton and silk, with tech­niques done by hand or on ma­chine, some­times with em­bel­lish­ments of paint or even crys­tals. The fin­ished prod­ucts daz­zle.

The main halls of the con­ven­tion cen­ter are filled with more than 1,700 quilts in a variety of ex­hibits. Per­haps the most spe­cial ex­hibit of all is the col­lec­tion of prize-win­ning quilts. Here are the top win­ners from the quilt fes­ti­val, con­sid­ered the pre­miere quilt show in the world.
