Quilted, Naturally

Kali and I paid a visit to the Pennsylvania National Quilt Extravaganza XVII last Sunday, September 18.  With "extravaganza" in the name, could the show be anything but hype?  Well, for once, there was truth in advertising.  The show was a spectacular extravaganza of quilts of all types from traditional patchwork to contemporary, cutting-edge (so to speak) appliqued wall hangings.  We spent over three hours at the show.

While I photographed many of the works on display, I'm presenting a gallery of some of the best of the nature themed quilts.

With one exception, every one of the quilts in the show was created by a woman.  As we were leaving the exhibition, Kali remarked, "If these pieces had been created by men, they'd be hanging in art museums."   

Medea Escaping  Not nature-themed, but a real show stopper!

The colors are fantastic but the talent behind the designs blows me away.
