A little behind.....



I've fallen a little behind on blogging the past couple of weeks.
Family life has just been filled with lots of big activities...
The most precious event was my little grandson's graduation from Nursery School.

On our final day in Colorado our group went to the Rocky Mountain Quilt Museum. We shared the day with our hostess Dawn Ronningen, Shona Halberstadt and Terry Pryke (who traveled all the way from South Africa)

The exhibit was:

I don't want to spoil the exhibit for those planning to attend, so for now I will just share 2 of my many favorite quilts. The first one was by Kay Haerland of New South Wales titled: A Different View

The detail in this quilt was truly amazing! 3 dimensional layering of fabric and embellishments made this so lifelike and drew you in for a closer look.

There were several fabulous hexagon quilts!
This one was the simplest in design, yet I loved this interpretation of the traditional Mosaic Diamond pattern.

Especially how the large floral prints were showcased in the center of some of the hexagon diamonds.

It was such a wonderful exhibit with many more beautiful and inspiring quilts!

The entire trip to Colorado was Awesome! I've taken away SO many fond memories of wonderful places and special friends.

every quilt tells a story....

  8. I am wondering how the quilt maker got the stripes on the underneath part of the mushroom to go different directions. My first thought is that they are painted.
