31 Biennial Festival of Quilts Part 2

I loved that this Quilt show was made up of many different quilt guilds. I shared the 3 fabric challenge in the previous post.

These were made from a Folded Fabric Elegance class by Rami Kim.

18 Teal Quilt

 These quilts are from the Quilt Guild of Metro Detroit.  This challenge was issued to its members to create a unique quilt along a pre-defined theme.  From the member's submissions the guild selects and enters eight quilts into AQS Guild Challenges.  The theme was "Nature at its Best" and the color purple had to be used somewhere in the quilt.  13 Quilts were submitted, 8 were selected by vote to be entered into the Challenge.  The guild won Honorable Mention for this year's Challenge at the Grand Rapids AQS Show in August.
