Folklife Quilt Exhibit

Hello all! You may have noticed that I took a little break last week, but I'm back to show you some gorgeous quilts made by the Seattle Modern Quilt Quild! Every year over memorial day weekend here in Seattle, we have the Folklife Festival. It's hard to describe, but there's a lot of music and handmade stuff and awesome food all gathered at Seattle Center, and it's a really fun time. This year (for the second time, actually), our guild was asked to exhibit some quilts in one of the courtyards and we happily accepted. We strung them up on the walls, and the display turned out beautifully. There are a lot of pictures in this post, so please bear with me (fellow quilters, if I missed you or mislabeled you, let me know)!

So there you have it! This is only a small sampling of the amazing quilts our members make on a regular basis, so if you'd like more pictures, you can check us out on Instagram or Flickr.

And, just because I'm the blogger and I can, I leave you with a picture of me with my "Binary Rain" quilt!
