Quilts at the Bay Quilt Show



Our quilt show was a big success! We had more than 160 quilts from at least 60 local quilters. We also displayed the Keepsake Quilting Challenge Traveling Quilt Show. The proceeds were more than we expected and will be donated to local charities.

In the second one, the features of her face seemed lopsided. I had tried to place the nose, mouth, etc. just by looking at the picture. In my third attempt, I actually traced her facial features on clear vinyl and used it as an overlay to fuse the pieces in the correct location.
