As I mentioned in my last post, today was the day my quilt guild met at the "New Quilts from an Old Favorite" show at the Dunedin Fine Arts Center. We're so lucky that this traveling show makes a stop in our area every other year, and the shows are during the summer when we have time to go!
I've been to quite a few of these shows over the years. Sometimes I worry that I won't like the quilts so much, because the theme might be a block that I'm not so crazy about-- Double Wedding Ring comes to mind, and there was a Bear Claw theme a few years back also. Then I go to the show and am simply bowled over by the quilts, regardless of what the theme is.
Of course, there were no such worries about the theme this year. Who doesn't like sunflowers?
There were real sunflower seeds attached to the quilt. The bird on the lower right side has one in his mouth.
Here's the bottom of that quilt, all made of hexagons and beautifully beaded.
Well, maybe I should say the only "human"
This one had 3 little fairies in it.
Stay tuned for more Quilting Eye Candy!
