Tahawus Quilt Exhibit Warmth and Beauty Part 2

 Here are some more photos. 

My Morris Hexathon quilt that I finished in 2017. One block a week for 26-weeks focused on English textile designer, William Morris, and offered by Barbara Brackman. 

I'm explaining to Craig Bashear, owner of the Tahawus Cultural Center, what fussy-cutting is all about. 

And my daughter, Connie, chatting with Rebecca of Rebecca Kelly Ballet and the other owner of the cultural center, who offers ballet classes in the Cloudsplitter Dance Studio on the third floor of this historic building.

Exploration by Dawn Klotzko is hand-appliqued and free motion long-arm quilted.

I finished Dear Daughter last year after I had reproduced blocks that were made by NJ quiltmakers in 1852. 

Cups by Bethany Krawiec is such a playful quilt with its bright colors and clever use of ric-rac.  

Three of my monthly minis were also on display :)

Hurricane Mountain is a montage of blocks that Bethany K. made after a hike up that mountain :)

Enjoy your weekend!
