Wow is all I can say! I am constantly amazed at the new heights the quilters and other textile artist here attain. This is the best group I know for pushing themselves and others to new limits. The colours, techniques, artistry and precision exhibited in the quilts, bags, embroideries and weaving makes this a show not to miss.
I had a wonderful morning, looking at the quilts, and visiting with my good friends here. I’m looking forward to seeing them again tomorrow.
The show opened Wednesday night. I would not have wanted to be one of the judges this year. They really had to know their art… both technically and artistically, and judging from the comments on my forms, they do. Congratulations to all the winners…… a job very well done.
Here are just a few of the quilts..
