At the museum, there was a photo of two young men, Native Americans, dressed in their finest clothing. I studied the picture for a long time. Something didn't look right. But what? Then I read that following exposure to European cultures, the Native Americans began working European (in this case Norwegian) patterns into their beadwork. Both men had short hair, in the European manner. The Native American/Norwegian designs were intriguing!
The quilt show was very nice. It wasn't always possible to take a picture of the entire quilt. I captured as much as I could. Hope you enjoy them as much as we did!
I bet whoever made this tumbler quilt had an AccuQuilt Go!
The quilt below was one of my favorites. I like the striped sections adjoining the Log Cabin blocks.
The blue and white quilt was in my top three for Viewer's Choice.
These tesselating leaves were beautiful. The picture doesn't do it justice.
My Sweetie had this red and black quilt on his top three for Viewer's Choice.
I love the simplicity of the black and white chains in this quilt.
I love this radiant pattern.
Here are some of the challenge quilts with a barn yard theme.
The dolphin quilt below was three dimensional.
How nice to see that quilting is treasured and promoted at this event. We also saw how to braid your own rope. There were troll carving and rosemaling demonstrations, and hay rides for the kids. :)
