Went to Olbrich Gardens in Madison, WI. Olbrich holds the "Quilts in Bloom" show every year. It runs through October 17. Not only are the quilts extraordinary, but the setting, back drops and accents are fantastic. This is the first quilt you see as you enter the show.
Next come the challenge quilts. Here's the fabric all 26 entrants were to use.
The variety of interpretations is fascinating!http://cre8tivekick.blogspot.com/ . It was fun to stand back watch other people's reactions. Quite few of them were interested in Karen's quilt, Flora Checks In.
The picture below came out blurry. I included it anyway because it was sooo pretty. Such detail!
This quilt was made by Nancy Zieman. She calls it A Party At The Fence Post, and its not for sale. I wonder what Nancy does with all of her projects?
