Quilts were hung EVERYWHERE!!!

I started the day in the Teachers' Tent, and then checked out several Special Exhibits. As I moved through the day, I also photographed random quilts that caught my eye. This post is dedicated to quilts shot on the fly!
Some I found interesting for their subject matter - I'd just finished reading about Kandinsky, and what should I see?
|Spotted in the "Students of Rosalie Dace" exhibit.|
Some I enjoyed for their humour, like this selvedge confession!

Sometimes I wanted a closer look at the quilting - I'd just had a class with Angela the day prior to the show!

This quilt reminded me of the Gees Bend philosophy of using what's available, plus I enjoyed its clever composition.

I liked the "tumbling blocks" in this one - a new take on an old idea!

There was a special display of quilts - featuring Kona Solids - made by famous quilters in celebration of Kona's 30th anniversary.

VW vans and tie-dyed t-shirts . . . this quilt just made me smile!

The SAQA exhibit deserved more attention, but it was displayed in a busy restaurant courtyard.
Diners were accommodating, but it would have been poor form to lean over their tables or squeeze in behind them for a closer look. Pooh.

This one should just say, "Go quilt!", don't ya think??? Ha!

I was sad to say goodbye when the show was over, but it was time. The wind had picked up, my feet were tired, and I was almost "quilted out". Happily, we had Tula Pink's quilt walk to look forward to the next day. Yay!
Thanks for allowing me to share. It was like being there again!

I hope to travel that way again some day.
