I went to the NSQG (Northern Suburbs Quilt Guild) (northern from Chicago) quilt show tonight and what a feast for the eyes. In our area there tend to be a lot of artsy quilts. I can admire the art and the colors, and even the creativeness of them, but my eyes are always drawn to the simple more traditional quilts. And I love those earthy colors.
Sometimes the simple ones just say so much more to me. I think back to those days when quilts were a staple of life and meant warmth, home, family and love. This little quilt was simple in design, and wasn't large, just a small wall hanging, but it hung proud and did draw my eyes to it. And when I read the notes about it, I could see it was made with love - even if it didn't end up where it was suppose to go! :)
Just wanted to share this quick pic with you. I took 146 pictures! Yes I am a quilt picture junkie. But I"ll have to load them all on Monday when I have the high speed internet. If I do it from home with the dial up I'll probably still be on loading come Monday! Maybe I'll share a few more over the weekend!
