I didn't sleep for a week. Literally. 7 days and no sleep. The quilt came. I slept.
Then our quilt show took place. And it came with such success, it was surreal. People came from everywhere. They were waiting for the show to open. They flooded the place on the first day. There was not one negative comment. Not one.
And you know what? I had fun. The guild I belong to is incredible. These women work. You asked them to do something, and it was done. That's it. I have realized that my generation can really learn from the older one. We don't give our word like these people do, we don't start and more importantly finish a task that is assigned to us. We don't know how to work like that generation. I admire them.
I better get to the pictures before I tick any young people off=) Here is the deal. I do know who made these quilts. We allow photos at our show, so I have no problem putting them on my blog. But, I am careful about putting names on my blog, and I did not ask any of them if I could put their names on, so please know I am not purposely not giving credit to those whose quilts I show, but rather just being respectful. Whew, after that big blurb, if you are still with me, here are the photos of our quilt show.
This quilt was my all time favourite. Okay, there wasn't really alot of art quilts there. But I just loved this one. And I didn't even tell the maker of it.
And this was our feature quilt. Ground Zero by Lois Jarvis. It had over 600 faces of the victims who were killed in 9/11. We had a guest book at the table in front as well as Ms. Jarvis' story of why she made the quilt. Very few walked away without being choked up.
