a weekend quilt show

The Northern Star Quilt Guild of Somers, NY, has always had an excellent quilt show, but I every year I have managed to be away teaching the weekend of the show -- until now. Fortunately, I was available because the guild invited me to have an exhibit of a dozen pieces this past weekend. The show has moved to a new venue and the quilts were beautifully displayed.  Here are some of my favorites - and they were all ribbon-winners.

The whole show was great but it was a particular joy to see your quilts.

Saw your quilts at the show, they were beautiful! I went with a friend who is a very traditional quilter, and she was entirely underwhelmed by them. I love that this show had a great selection of quilts for both of us to enjoy.
