Modern Solstice

Last Friday, a new exhibit went up at Island Quilter! And that would be "Modern Solstice", an inspiring collection of star quilts from the Seattle Modern Quilt Guild.
I couldn't resist getting a photo right off of my "Auspicious Sky" hanging in the line up!

I'm going to omit the commentary, and just let you enjoy "the show" . . .

"Auspicious Sky" by moi!

I'm afraid I missed getting pictures of a couple, and apologize for any credit omissions, but you can see there really were some lovely quilts. It was quite a pleasure to see them up close and personal and mingle with my fellow guild-mates. Honestly, a pretty great way to spend a Friday night!

Thanks for the lovely quilt show! I enjoyed seeing all of those star quilts. Love the nurture circle DGS one. And yay, you're famous! :) Your star quilt is bigger than I thought it was. For some reason I thought it was something like half that size!
