The show is the Quintessential Quilt 2015 at the University MO public library, through October. Free and open to the public during regular library hours. If you're anywhere near the St. Louis area, I encourage you to visit the show. There are some awesome quilts in a great variety of styles, including traditional, art, innovative, modern, and embellished crazy quilting.
I'm thrilled that Gramercy & Friends won a red ribbon! Here's Gramercy hanging in the library:
Gramercy & Friends at The Quintessential Quilt 2015
The Quintessential Quilt is a juried & judged show with very limited space for large quilts, so the fact that Gramercy was juried in is already special. That it won a ribbon is icing on the cake, and due, I'm sure, to the inspired and excellent quilting of Jane Coons. I'll share the judges' comments with her when I get them after the show ends.
(Aside - Gramercy has to be the most un-photogenic quilt I've ever seen. I just cannot get a good photo of it that shows both the fabrics and the quilting. ...sigh... I'll have to keep trying.)
Our show opening yesterday was well attended, due to the lecture & trunk show by Bonnie Hunter. She's delightfully personable and down to earth. I'll have to edit photos to share the experience in another post later.
Meanwhile, the post-vacation to-do list awaits. Laundry, groceries, bills, housework, errands... no sewing for me for a few days, I'm afraid.
Linking up with Judy at Patchwork Times.
