Ok, so moving on to the rest of the Jacksonville Quilt Fest that was held a couple of weeks ago. As I mentioned in my last post, the quilts I am showing are just some of what was of interest to me in one way or another, in no particular order.

And finally. . .
Elisabeth's Garden: A Tale of a Thousand Threads by Elisabeth Frolet of Dunwoody, Georgia.
I was really taken with this crazy quilt. Her work was fabulous! It was her original design and a tale of her favorite hobbies and activities. Silhouettes in the border of her husband, children and herself have been painted with oil pastels. This was one of those quilts you could just look at for hours. It was absolutely beautiful! I've included several close-ups, below. Enjoy!
Hopefully some of the quilts from this show have inspired you. I know there were several that inspired me. Until next time. . . Happy Quilting!
