The Rest of the Story

Here are a few more pictures and tidbits from Quilt Fest.  Friday, our luncheon speaker was Kim Diehl who is the author of the "Simple" quilting books...Simple Blessings, Simple Traditions, etc.  Her quilts are all about comfort and cozy, while her applique gives each one an artistic flair.  Kim also designs fabric for Henry Glass when she is not teaching or writing.  (Sorry there is no photo, bad lighting)

Friday evening we had a lecture with Elly Sienkiewicz, the Queen of Baltimore!  Ellie is the encyclopedia of Baltimore Album Quilts and has had a big impact on the revival of this style of quilting.  The applique in these quilts all have a meaning and the symbols can be found throughout history from all over the world.  Just a delightful learning experience.
