Today's the Day!

Today is the day the Lowell Quilt Festival kicks off and you can check out the special exhibit of the Boston Modern Quilt Guild at the Appleton Mills. Our exhibit is free to the public, but there is a small fee to attend other aspects of the fesitval.
I will have four quilts on display, two wall quilts and two mini quilts.
First is my "Colorful Abode" mini quilt.  This one is in great company with several fantastic mini quilts.  It always amazes me to see what people can do with small pieces of fabric.
Next is my "Moonlit Sky" quilt that was shown at the Lowell Quilt Festival last year in the main show exhibit and placed first in the Wall Quilt Pieced category.
Third is my "Dazzling Diamonds" quilt that is part of the Mini Quilt Challenge for the show.  I saw all of the quilts last night as I was adding my final quilt, and I have to say, all of the challenge quilts are absolutely amazing.  It's going to be a tough competition!  Seriously, I love all of the quilts shown.

Finally, I have my "Dreaming in Color" quilt that I literally put the final stitch in the binding and hanging sleeve the night before I needed to have this hanging, so I don't have a good picture yet of the completed quilt.  Well, completed for now.  All of the dark grey is quilted, which could really be enough, but I might go back and add some quilting to the octagons after the fact. 

So, if you're in the area, come on by this weekend.  You won't be disappointed. I guarantee it.
