Asheville Quilt Guild Show

The Asheville Quilt Guild Show is still going on through today located at the fair grounds on airport road right across from the airport. There are some beautiful quilts to see and everything from traditional to art quilts to first quilts. Our picture taking was limiting to personal use so unfortunately I won't be able to share any of the wonderful pieces with you.
 The only exception to that rule was our exhibit by PTA - Professional Textile Artists. We've shown this exhibit in many venues but never in our home town so it felt kinda good.
 The exhibit was a challenge for each member to create an art quilt inspired by a 2-dimensional artist.
 Signage alongside each piece showed a work by the 2 dimensional artist and then our interpretation.
 I usually don't like challenges but this one I loved.  We tried to hang them so bright ones were together and so on.
 This exhibit will probably retire after today but it's had a good run and nice to end up where you started. Above is Cathy Neimans piece which was wonderful.
and the signage.  There's still time to see the exhibit and visit the wonderful vendors.
