Quilts 4 All Seasons
This past weekend, the Elm City Guild held their quilt show, titled Quilts 4 All Seasons. As usual it was an amazing display of work. I popped down on Friday evening, after returning from Amherst. I was tired, and only had an hour before they closed, but I managed to see it all, although I would have liked longer to "linger" over some pieces. It is a shame that our city does not have a good size exhibit space that is reasonably priced for shows like this. With four (yes four!!) Guilds in our area, it would sure be nice to have a spacious well lit space that would be available for a reasonable fee. You can see from these photos, that although they did an incredible job of exhibiting the quilts, and decorating for the 4 seasons, it was pretty crowded. There were many pieces that I just would have liked to see more of! But, all in all, a great show. I heard there were approximately 400 pieces shown. Wow!! Wouldn't you like to know how many total hours of work that represents?? Kudos to ECQG!
