Since I am accomplishing absolutely no stitching right now, I thought I would share with you a few favorite quilts from the International Quilt Invitational Exhibit. It was on display at a little museum over the mountains, and DH and I dropped in one day last month. There wasn't a single quilt in a style I would make (most of them were applique), but I loved seeing the variety of lovely, and clever quilts. Hope you see something you like.
This is Leaf Hoppers, and from a distance it appears to be a unique take on a Baltimore Album quilt. Well, it is unique, all right. Look closer.

This was a fun quilt. Made me want to go home and watch an old movie. :)
This quilt seemed to exude grace and fluidity. I felt like the fish would move any minute. Beautifully made!
Had to include this fun explosion of color!
Of course I would include a mini quilt! :)
This quilt was stunning!
I think I stared at this quilt the longest. Not only was the subject matter touching, but the techniques and execution had me captivated.
On the home front, Maggie is keeping us smiling, and moving!
Below, left, is DH with all of our grandchildren (so far). Maggie loves being with her cousins!
And she keeps her great-grandmas entertained!
I have tried to pop in and read a blog or two now and then. Sometimes I even have time to comment. But for two more weeks my presence in blogland will continue to be spotty, and for a very good reason!
Until next time,
