Evolution of a Quilter -Virtual Tour of Exhibit

I stopped in at the exhibit last week and snapped a few photos to share with those of you who are not able to see the show in person.

There are 30 quilts in the show.
I will share a few images each day with you.

This quilt is so large I was not able to get the entire image in the view finder of the camera.

You can see the chickens on the bottom portion of the quilt in this photo.

Signage for Quilt at Exhibit:


Inspired by the sunflowers grown in the front yard and by my favorite quilting friend, Linda.

Created over the course of 5 summers, while I was inspired by the real sunflowers that were growing.

This quilt was a joy and a pleasure from start to finish.
