Quilt Show in Oaks

My daughter and I went to the quilt show today in Oaks.  She took the pictures and I am not sure there are photos of all the ones I like but here are a few.  I liked this one because of the unique way they used the different types of fabrice. You cannot tell from this, but the buildings were done in different upholstery fabric and even burlap. It added great texture to the piece.

I liked this quilt because of the sheep. Each one was done in a different way, and many were using wool that looked like it had been felted.
This one was really cool. Reminded me of the sun.  Gradient dyed fabric doilies were used and it would look nice in my kitchen with my sun collection.
Although not traditional in the normal way, this quilt takes you back in time a bit, with lots of sewing bits, and
the baby clothing.  It was part of an exhibit where the same people were provided the same fabric and each created something unique.  I thought this was a nice memory piece.
There were also several quilts in one section that depicted homelessness. They brought tears to my eyes. I don't see pictures on the camera of those. It was a fun day, and I am actually glad we went today because it was not so busy.
