THE MORGAN MANNING QUILT SHOW...

This morning I went down to the Morgan Manning House to do a photo shoot of a quilt show. It would make a great book.
A quilting group is part of the Historical Society, and they thought it would be a good idea to display some of the local handy work. Even tho it was all done by word of mouth, they collected over 120 quilts from people within the area. Another example our sense of community. Here are a few samples.


















There were four vendors in the Carriage House and you could buy anything you would ever need to make a quilt.




I'd say it was a very successful endeavor, and so appropriate for this old historical house.

The quilts are beautiful, but your new header is better than beautiful!

What a wonderful show. Wish I could have been there to see all those quilts and visit the vendors. I would have loved to see the old house too!

Now that is art! Not only the wonderful quilts but your photos too, especially your new header.

Beautiful! Somehow, as art, quilts move me more than most things. Maybe because there is so much everyday history recorded in them.

Those quilts are stunning! I have a few as well that I love, because there's such a sense of the artist in each of them, carefully stitching away...

Gorgeous examples and what a beautiful old building for a quilt show.
