I love quilts and I found a couple that were perfect for me at a wonderful quilt show in Owatonna, Minnesota a couple of years ago. Yes, I am a little slow in posting things at times and as I was looking through a bunch of photos recently I happened upon a file of pictures that I had taken in April 2014 at the Owatonna Arts Center where the Piecemakers Quilt Guild had a wonderful exhibit of amazing quilts.
I found out about the show from Audrey who blogs at Minnesota Prairie Roots and Chris and I spent a good deal of time taking in all of the wonderful quilts. Chris was as interested in them as I was but among all of the quilts there I lingered on the ones that I am featuring today. Trust me – there will be another post with many of the other quilts that were on display.
Quilting is such an art and a great way to express creativity. I shared earlier on the blog the Cathedral Window Quilt that my mom made that I now have in my own home. You can read that post here. I have not taken up quilting but it is something that intrigues me. I was fortunate enough to get a quilt top from Chris’s Grandma Kate and my friend, Doreen, who blogs at Treadlemusic finished it for me and it is beautiful as well. I shared her creative touches in this post.
It always amazes me to see what people with a passion for their craft can create. Whether it is quilting, writing, woodworking or gardening there is always something to learn.
Thanks for stopping by today and sharing one of my favorite things. Don’t forget to leave a comment for Comments for a Cause.
