One Day at Quiltweek in Grand Rapids

I attended the AQS Quiltweek Show in Grand Rapids, Michigan, on Thursday this past week. I didn't take any classes, but enjoyed viewing the rows of quilts on display, seeing some quilting friends I don't see very often, and checking what the vendors had to sell.

The exhibit of 300 memorial quilts on display this year was very moving. These quilts were made to honor those who died in the 9-11 attacks. Blocks were made and sent from all over the world and then sewn into the quilt. These are a few of the photos I took.

I made sure I got to see the quilt made by my friend, Rejeanne. She titled it, Focus.

I was amazed by the 9-11 quilt. Thank you for showing it to us (I didn't even know that something like this existed, and I'm glad to see it does). Glad you were able to go to the show and see friends!
