AQS Quilt Exhibit in Grand Rapids 2014

This is my third and final post about the beautiful special exhibit of the quilts of Elaine O'Toole Stannis.  The first two posts are (Here) and (Here).  

I will finish showing you her quilts with two more, one of her first and probably one of her last quilts:

Here's the info tag on it.  When I read the taq, I thought "first quilt?"  Wow!!

The main featured quilt of her exhibit:

And the info on it:

I hope the AQS does more exhibits like this one.  There are several of my friends who make exquisite quilts and it is so nice to see a quilter's body of work featured all in one place.

One of my friends had two quilts in the AQS show.  Joan Brink had her Liberty quilt in the show.  Instead of a picture of her just standing by it, I asked her to do a Vanna White thing, and really "show" it to me!  Here's Joan and her quilt:
She does beautiful applique work.

Another one she had in the show was of a fawn.  The inspiration for this quilt was a photo taken in her yard:

Sorry it's a little blurry.  I'm old.  I love the appliqued spots and the leaves.  I am seeing Joan soon in Shipshewanna, IN at the Dear Jane Retreat.  I love to sew with friends, in a room filled with laughter.

Happy Monday everyone.  Next post will be about what I'm working on now.
