Aileen O'Toole Stannis was remembered and honored with a special tribute exhibit of 26 of her quilts. This display of 35 years of beautiful master quilting was a real treat for me. It included her quilt "Baltimore Remembered", which received the 1996 Gingher Hand Workmanship Award in 1996. But I enjoyed all of her work just as much as her award winning quilt. Here are pictures of some of her beautiful quilts:
This quilt was a tribute to the year 2000, and has 2,000 triangles of vintage quilt fabric.
Next is a reproduction of an old quilt. Her hand quilting is so beautiful.

Next is her Calico Garden quilt. I have always wanted to make this quilt - it's on my bucket list.

Well, I will show you more of her quilts tomorrow, if you would like me to. Her quilts are so beautiful.
I haven't blogged for a month because I broke my right wrist, but it is all better, and I am now back in action.
